“Partially inspired by hand-­-colored photographs from the Meiji period, Reverse Fade embraces the idea of being caught in limbo between old and new worlds which unite but are somehow subverted to create a surreal element. Triggered by the faded, falling, lively, and burnt nature of fabrics from past eras, I sought to bring these qualities into a contemporary dialogue through preservation and translucent layering.” – Designer, Mayako Penelope Kano

Launched in 2010 by former Dean, Simon Collins, with support from Donna Karan, the MFA is the first graduate program of its kind in the United States. The Parsons MFA show is a runway presentation showcasing 11 collections from the 2015 graduates of the Parsons MFA in Fashion Design and Society, a globally recognized, highly selective program for emerging designers.
