At the Parsons Fashion Benefit next Tuesday, Anna Wintour will present to Marc Jacobs and Saks Fifth Avenue president Marc Metrick will present to LVMH, the school announced today. Additionally, The New York Times’ fashion director and resident critic Vanessa Friedman will give a keynote speech at the event, which will take place at the Javits Center’s River Pavilion. Last year, Jason Wu and Hugo Boss took top honors; in 2013, Proenza Schouler and Hudson’s Bay were recognized, and the previous year, Donna Karan was the event’s honoree.
How about the talents we’re bound to see honored a couple decades down the line? The school will host its annual Afternoon Show, bringing top current students’ wares to the catwalk at the Javits Center, at 3 p.m. prior to the evening benefit.
