The annual Parsons Benefit at The New School is a collaboration between Parsons School of Design and the College of Performing Arts. It is an opportunity to honor members of the greater design and performance community who exemplify our university's mission while raising scholarship funds to support students throughout The New School. Combining student performance and presentation of student fashion collections, the 2017 Parsons Benefit will showcase the next generation of creative talent.
