See you next year, for our 15th anniversary!
The show was a hit! From the opening collections of last year’s winners Rachel Nachmias and Kooan Okawa to the brilliant concepts of F.I.T. and Parsons, this was one of Fusion’s best years (to me, it was the best.) The talent was exceptional, the designs were fresh, fun, and thoughtful and the friendships/memories made will last a lifetime.
Congratulations to F.I.T. for taking the Fusion crown back. It was well deserved. Congratulations also goes to Parsons for making this one of the closest Fusions in recent memory.
Atsuko Yagi, Best Designer from Parsons, showcased her talent with innovative, yet wearable animal/creature inspired outfits while Madalyn Conforti, Best Designer from F.I.T. wowed the crowed with beautifully tailored creations. Madalyn also became the first female from F.I.T. to win the award in the 8 years of Fusion.
The show was magic and I couldn’t be more proud of the all those who participated in Fusion. Annie Lim and Richard Lowe, the coordinators, did a fantastic job, and Michelle Larsen really did so much with the website.
I’m already looking forward to next year.
