Solange’s Saint Heron Agency Teaming with Parsons for Immersive Festival


Solange’s creative agency Saint Heron is teaming up with the New School for an immersive virtual festival for Parsons School of Fashion. The online event is titled Here and Now and will act as a virtual celebration of the Class of 2020 and the students’ end-of-the-year projects. The festival will take place from June to August and feature online discussions, lectures, performances, films screenings, design workshops, and mentorship opportunities.

Here and Now will also feature Metonymy, a 3D installation created in collaboration with Saint Heron’s creative team, artist Jacolby Satterwhite, and over 300 graduating students from the School of Fashion at Parsons.

“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,” Solange’s design studio and creative agency said in a statement. The Saint Heron team continued:

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.

Jason Kass, the Interim Dean of Fashion at Parsons School of Design, added:

The Class of 2020 is in a unique and unexpected position. We are
excited to partner with Saint Heron on a shared vision for
extraordinary access and meaningful insight into our students’ work.
With Here and Now we are providing our graduating students and the
creative community a space for discovery and growth. Our graduates are
unequivocally the future of fashion and textile design, fashion
marketing and management. We are committed to creating opportunities
to showcase their outcomes and successfully position them for the next
chapter of their lives.
