To Do Sunday: Hot Fusion

Alexander Wang.

Forget Project Runway—the real fashion showdown is at “Fusion,” the annual competition that pits future design superstars from Parsons against those from FIT in a runway show with only one winner and one school going home with the gold. Past Fusion contestants have included Prabal Gurung, Chris Benz and Alexander Wang. The catwalk competition includes five shows over the weekend, and the crowds from both schools are loud and proud and dressed as if they are attending the opening of a nightclub, so kit yourself out in your best after-hours garb.

Parsons The New School for Design, 66 Fifth Avenue, (212) 229-8900, 2pm and 6pm.
