Angela Luna's collection designed to meet the needs of refugees bagged her Parson's Designer of the Year award.

On our minds is “Crossing the Boundaries”, the graduate collection from Parsons Student Angela Luna designed to meet the needs of refugees fleeing the civic unrests in the Middle East. Made up of seven unisex pieces such as jackets and ponchos that also work as tents and sleeping bags, Luna means that her collection is an attempt to acknowledge migrants and the tragedies they face as well as address some of their needs. Though designed to serve a specific purpose, Luna means that her creations are equally made relevant to today’s fashion market and stylish enough to be worn on the streets of any fashion capital, too. The collection bagged her Parsons’ Womenswear Designer of the Year award, and her aim is to turn her concept into a philanthropic, TOMS-style brand with forthcoming collections addressing similar humanitarian crises and consumer market needs. Watch a video with the designer presenting her innovative concept here.
