WATCH | The Parsons' MFA Spring/Summer 2017 show was nothing short of a spectacle, comprised of 13 collections that flirted with gender fluidity, feathered sportswear and Margiela-inspired masks.
The show took place at MADE NYFW on Wednesday, Sept. 7.
The highly selective two-year Fashion Design and Society MFA program at Parsons School of Design gives its graduating class a "thesis showcase" collection at New York Fashion Week every year.
Circa caught up with two designers after the show to ask them about the sources of their inspiration, what they think the next big fashion trend will be -- and perhaps what it should be.
"I think the next trend is easy streetwear, with more comfortable fabric," said Queenie Qinghe Cao, one of the designers. "But I'd like to see more colorful things."
Queenie Qinghe Cao's collection was inspired by beauty in horror.
Ran Bi's ideas were inspired by his father who is an engineering teacher.
For most graduates, it was their first time putting on a NYFW runway show.
