• 71st Parsons Benefit

    The 71st Parsons Benefit will take place on May 20, 2019, at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers. Through design and performance, students from Parsons and the New School will collaborate to show the impact of scholars, artists, and designers coming together to challenge convention and create positive change.

    The benefit is an opportunity to honor members of the greater design and performance community who exemplify our school's mission while raising scholarship funds to support students throughout The New School.

    Past honorees include Rihanna, Eileen Fisher, Sarah Jessica Parker, Arianna Huffington, Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, HUGO BOSS, Reed Krakoff, Diane von Furstenberg, and Neiman Marcus Group. This year, we will honor innovative retailer Farfetch (award accepted by José Neves) and luxury fashion house Gucci (award accepted by Marco Bizzarri).
