After Fashion Week, Students are Paris–Bound

15 young artists have Louis Vuitton to thank for their upcoming trip to France! As part of February’s New York Fashion Week, students from the Joffrey Ballet School’s Jazz and Contemporary program, Parsons The New School for Design and the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music presented the final products of a six-month collaborative performance project. Working in teams led by choreographers Francesca Harper, Ginger Thatcher, Angelica Stiskin, Ephrat "Bounce" Asherie, Tiffany Rea-Fisher and Joyce King, artists created original 5–7 minute pieces with original choreography, music and costumes made from donated Louis Vuitton materials. (Ooh la la!) Stiskin's group created the winning piece, Chronogenesis, which focuses on the nature of time and the frenzied pace of everyday life. She and her team will travel to France in May to tour the LV store, museum and workshop. Check out their fashion-forward costume designs:
