    Those clothes don't look like anything special to me, but good for her.

    Looks like Saks' game plan for reinvention is to scoop up young designers fresh out of school and claim them as their own discoveries. But I think they jumped the gun with this one. There are so many more deserving talents out there. What exactly does this Verrier girl bring to the table? I'm sure she'll find her niche but an outpour of support like this should only be reserved for very special circumstances, IMO.

    I agree with many of the above statements. I personally think a lot of European and Asian schools blow Parsons out of the water, espcially if this is the best the school has to offer.

    This is no where close to when John Galliano had his senior collection bought by Browns.

    Agree, nothing special at all. First and last are decent, second one appears to be an 80s schizophrenic coke fiend's dream gone wrong (doesn't help that the model looks like a dude with a wig). Did she ever get lucky though, it can take 5 years or more of successfull sales before a name like that picks you up.

    They look like nice enough clothes but nothing that makes me say "Oh my! Where can I find that?"

    They look more like filler pieces than a collection.

    However I will at least give her that the black dress is nice, although very basic. But congratulations to her.

    I saw the Parsons final show and to be honest, the clothes lack freshness, they seem very Proenza S. which isn't surprising considering she interned for them all throughout her senior year supposedly. N. Allen, the girl she tied with, actually displayed a lot more originality and finish but she relied a lot more on technology and 'techno' fabrics. I could eventually see her work helping Olympic ahtletes to be able to move through the water faster, it was more in that slant.

    It's always good to see a graduate, especially a female student, do so well after graduation but when it lacks a real solid statement and personality, you can't help but wonder if it's going to get lost in the crowd, no matter how seventh avenue and how Vogue magazine it all is. I'm hoping she gets a little more aggressive.

    this is an interesting issue. After reading the article I had high expectations...and when I first looked at the photos my first thought was...I dont get it...I must be missing something because these pieces arent really what all the support and talk builds you up for.

    These are not ugly clothes. These are not special clothes. They are nice clothes.

    I think one thing to bear in mind is, I have seen some stunning work around the parsons buildings...and what I do know is that the internal selection process to even get promotion like this does have a certain filter, or bias. Not all of the interesting work Ive seen by parsons students even gets pushed into the limelight. So I suppose they are promoting students' work that they think will actually be appreciated by stores like Saks...In this case their prediction worked!

    I think that you guys are not giving much credit to this talented idividual....she obviously is breaking it down, considering that she is hanging in Saks on Fifth Ave, next to Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney right out of school. I really like her clothes...I feel they have a whimisical quality with a sophisticated edge. I would love to wear every single one of them, anyday. I really hope that we see more from her....I have to admit that I am tired of male designers being promoted and never female ones.....I have confidence that she will prevail...hey if she has made it this far this quickly, it seems everything is going in the right direction...Good Luck to you Ms. Verrier! Keep up the great work :P !!!!!

    I am so tired of everybody being so negative on this site....honestly guys..why so judgemental????.....I detect bitterness/jealousy......take a moment for what she has accoplished.. Here is a photo of one of her looks on the cover of WWD titled, "THE GRADUATE"...now that is a credible publication that warrants some attention. [attachmentid=24393] I still maintain that this girl is headed for success.....you go girl!
