NEW YORK — On Thursday, 12 graduates from Parsons the New School for Design got a taste of what it was like to showcase their wares in a Madison Avenue flagship, courtesy of Calvin Klein Collection.
As part of the Parsons Fashion Benefit pre-party, which was held at the Calvin Klein Collection boutique that night, students Kristina Mkrtumova, Yun-Sook Shin, Jenny Chung, Nanae Takata, Sarah Lee, Dylan Kawahara, Jonathan Cohen, Robert Fitzsimmons, Sun Kyung Lee, Kirsten Geiger, Lee Anderson and Virginia Burris were able to exhibit one of their best looks. “It’s such a great experience for students,” said Simon Collins, Parsons’ dean of fashion. “They got their garments shown in the Calvin Klein store. This is their dream.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
