Parsons and LVMH put on The Art of Craftmanship Revisited

Fashiona's alma mater Parsons is in the news...not just for the newest season of  Project Runway but for a joint project that the school has with LVMH: LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, INC.

In a nutshell the project's goal to both promote teamwork across different disciplines AND to help the students develop a greater appreciation of  craftsmanship... a start to finish approach rather than a mass production approach where you only get to touch a small portion of the finished product.

The example that was given in the January 28th WWD article was a fashion designer, video maker and an editor in a team.  The contest started with 23 teams and the finalists will showcase their finery on February 17 at Milk Studios. 

A VIP panel...no names disclosed (what a tease) will choose the top three panels that will be honored in June.

Fashiona wishes all the teams good luck.
