In celebration of February Fashion Week, The Pierre, A Taj Hotel on New York's Central Park, is launching its new partnership with Parsons The New School For Design.
Four of the school's talented alumni will transform the hotel's Two E Bar/Lounge into a designer showcase with their latest fall looks. A special Emerging Designers Cocktail Menu, inspired by the Parsons graduates' designs and created by Two E's resident mixologists under the inventive direction of Sachin Hasan, will support Save the Garment Center: Made in NYC.
The first Pierre/Parsons Emerging Designers Showcase will feature styles from Samantha Sleeper, Wen Shi, Angela Gao and Laura Siegel. These budding Parsons graduates will help transform Two E Bar/Lounge into a mini-costume exhibit during the week of Fashion Week, opening at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 6, and culminating in a full fall collection preview and spring collection trunk show with each participating designer on Wednesday, February 13,10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Pierre will work with these same emerging designers for September Fashion Week, expanding the partnership to include Fashion’s Night Out events, runway shows, meet & greet designer events, fashion presentations and afternoon fashion teas. The new collaboration with Parsons reflects The Pierre’s longtime love of contemporary fashion and the glamorous guests it has housed over its eighty year history like Coco Chanel, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Karl Lagerfeld. In 1974, fashion legend Yves Saint Laurent held his first US haute couture show at the iconic hotel, which attracted boldfaced names like Lauren Bacall, Bianca Jagger and Diane von Furstenberg. The Pierre is committed to supporting the vibrant culture of New York City through its relationship with these talented designers, whose fresh concepts and creative designs further the city's innovative reputation in the global community.
