NEW YORK — Parsons The New School for Design prides itself on an education that balances design and business. Honoring both Tom Murry, Calvin Klein Inc.’s president and chief executive officer, and Francisco Costa, the women’s creative director of Calvin Klein Collection, at its benefit on Wednesday night drove that point home.
“I really want to show people what Parsons is all about,” the school’s dean of fashion, Simon Collins, said at the black-tie affair at Cipriani Wall Street.
