BUCOL’S GRAD: Olivier Fournier, managing director of the Bucol division of Solstiss/Groupe Perrin & Fils, is expected to present an award for design to Parsons School of Design senior Marie Mazelis this evening at Parsons’s annual Fashion Critics Awards Benefit and Show.
Bucol manufactured Mazelis’s textile creation — a silk taffeta with a chenille jacquard design — at its mill in Lyon, France.
Mazelis then designed the fabric into an evening gown that will be showcased at the show.
The seven students who worked on this year’s theme, Paris Couture, were advised by the American designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka.
