Meet Lenor Romano, BFA Fashion Design '81
“My time was well spent earning a BFA at Parsons. I studied Fashion Design and have been working as a designer ever since. It was a difficult, but direct track - in fact I almost quit. After spending my entire young life as an A+ student, I learned a hard lesson. The New School taught me if you answer all the questions correctly, you get a “C”. It’s what you bring above and beyond that qualifies you for an “A”. This lesson continues to parallel in life, as I work in my own business as a Sportswear designer, specializing in knitwear. "
