Teams of fashion students from Parsons The New School for Design went head-to-head in a daylong fashion competition last week to create conceptual installations embodying the Louis Vuitton brand. Passersby looked on as the young designers deconstructed and re-imagined pieces by Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Marc Jacobs. Each garment shows the beauty of handmade, reconstructed haute couture and an example of where fashion meets art. View all photos, including the winning design--determined by a high profile judging panel with Patricia Field and Style.com Executive Editor Nicole Phelps--below.
