Parsons, one of the top fashion schools in the world, held their Annual Fashion Benefit yesterday and we dropped by to preview some of the freshest new faces on the scene, both models and designers. For those who don’t remember, world famous Parsons alum include Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Tom Ford, Donna Karan, Narciso Rodriguez, Isaac Mizrahi and Lazaro/Jack from Proenza Schouler. The new generation is spearheaded by Peter Som, Derek Lam, Thakoon, Doo-Ri and the so very buzzed about Alexander Wang and Jason Wu. The event, which raised over a million dollars towards student scholarships, was a very impressive showing by 35 graduating seniors selected. The models, cast by Edward Kim featured a gorgeous lineup of new and familiar beauties. Here’s a peek behind the scenes at the Parsons Class of 2010 show; who’s your choice to be the next Marc/Anna/Donna?

  1. Zhu Lin is amazing! More Korean, Japanese & Chinese models needed!
    Loving Barbara di Creddo, too. Great pics. Thanks!

  2. Polina is wear a design by Mary Chin, not Brianna Fano. Please correct.
