Solange’s Saint Heron Partners with Parsons on a Virtual Festival for the Class of 2020
The New School’s esteemed fashion sector will celebrate their graduates with a Solange-endorsed online ceremony.
Solange’s creative agency Saint Heron just announced a partnership with New York’s The New School for a virtual festival in honor of the Parsons School of Fashion’s Class of 2020. Titled “Here and Now,” the digital celebration will highlight the students’ capstone projects and feature online discussions, lectures, performances, films screenings, design workshops, and mentorship opportunities. Taking place from June to August, Saint Heron’s festive partnership intends to provide a positive outlook on the students’ future through a summer of uncertainty.
Additionally, “Here and Now” will feature Metonymy, a 3D installation that was crafted in collaboration with artist Jacolby Satterwhite, over 300 Parsons graduates, and Saint Heron’s creative team. It’s a commemoration like none before, but it’s sure to be just as special.
“The Saint Heron team is honored to partner with The School of Fashion to celebrate and uplift the dedicated work of the graduating class of 2020 by presenting Here and Now,” says Solange’s design studio. “We look forward to working with the students over the coming weeks and helping bring attention to their hard work and unique perspective. As the world confronts the challenges of our current global crisis, fashion and design communities must embrace new ways to pause, evolve, and adapt. These challenges open up opportunities to expand growth in our creativity and innovation—two expressions at the core of Saint Heron as well as Parsons’ students.”
