Fashiona on Parsons School of Design

Fashiona thinks of her alma mater, Parsons School of Design once a month...when she pays her massive student loans. The school is a private art school within the New School University and located in Manhattan so it is a rather pricey place of learning. But as significant as the bills are, so were her many life changing experiences. As a student, Fashiona met Topaz (who wants to remind everyone that she is really a diamond girl but topaz is her birthstone) and Day, the sometimes photographer, who insisted that Fashiona "adopt" as her other little sister.

After Fashiona graduated she met and hired Raeana, class of 2010,
for her first internship. Years later Raeana, just back from Parsons Paris is on her way to Denmark as part of the Saga Fur Convention this summer; read about her experiences in her blog the StyleCon.

Raeana is on the left and Fashiona on right.

Fashion voyeurs at large, know Parsons as the school attached to the hit show and sometimes train wreck Project Runway but current students and alumni have a much more personal attachment to the institution. So it was only natural that Fashiona beamed with pride when she saw in Womens Wear Daily, that Parsons Associate in Applied Science Department gave out their first ever AAS icon award. The ever colorful Betsy Johnson presented the award to Fern Mallis, vice president of IMG Fashion.

Now, Miss
Raeana will most certainly compete in the next year's FIT/Parsons design competition...FIT better bring it on because the StyleCon and Parsons certainly will.

Betsey Johnson is a favorite of mine and my friend. I love her bags and shoes. My friend who is a jazz recording artist only wears Betsey on stage. She has some fabulous ensembles.
