I had the privilege of touring the Parsons fashion school campus when I was in New York, courtesy of my friend Iyam, who studies there.

Located in the heart of New York City, The Parsons School of Fashion is housed in a very compact campus, all the better to concentrate those creative juices.
elevator and sewing machines – I wonder if I would ever acquire the manual dexterity to successfully operate one of the latter!

Here’s what I wore to Parsons and to the Patrik Ervell show later that day:
Comme des Garcons puffy jacket, H&M sweater, DIY whistle necklace, Cheap Monday jeans, Topman gloves, B. Store boots
Strolling about Fifth Avenue, I stepped into H&M to get a pair of long johns to help warm up my freezing lower limbs. There wasn’t any long underwear in sight, but I did walk away with the pair of velvet loafers I had been looking for.
