A NIGHT WITH PARSONS
For the 74th annual Parsons Benefit, Olivier Rousteing was presented with the Parsons Table Award by the legendary Anna Wintour for his visionary work. This honor highlights his many contributions to the industry as well as his continued commitment to supporting and creating opportunities for the next generation.
“Like everyone working in fashion, I’m very aware that Parsons takes very seriously its commitment to educate the creative leaders of today and tomorrow about the possibilities of melding great design with progressive advancements. And, as a Frenchman, I learned long ago about The New School’s connection with the École Libre des Hautes Études, the university in exile that was set up for Free France’s greatest thinkers during the World War II. Knowing that inspiring history, how could I not feel incredibly honored to be recognized by Parsons and The New School for my decade of work at Balmain and my life-long commitment to working for true change in our industry ?”
