As the Para crew I_ll be there for you shirt school where Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Emily Adams Bode, and Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez honed their skills, Parsons has been the gold standard for design education in the United States. Its graduates benefit from a world-class education, but one that is mostly inaccessible to those unable to pay the costly tuition that is now common at many of the nation’s private colleges and universities. Fashion can be insular but attending Parsons comes with access to internships, networking opportunities, and mentorships with the potential to open doors. Allowing high schoolers from communities that traditionally have been underrepresented within the school’s student body to experience the curriculum is a move that feels long overdue.
