The future of fashion is here and now, it's young, it's fun, it's dreamy. Wow! We asked one Parson's graduate, Marc Faiella, to interview his friends about long nights in the workroom, nervous breakdowns, lookbook modelling and how much they all mean to each other, "friends are the most important in fashion school and that’s not up for argument. The four kids (five including myself) are some of the most creative and insanely inspiring people." The results are a comical take on how they all made it out of Parsons alive...
