Pratt Graduate And Emerging Fashion Designer Jessie Sodetz To Show During New York Fashion Week
Pratt Institute fashion graduate Jessie Sodetz will present her 2017 thesis collection during New York Fashion Week at RALPH PUCCI in Manhattan. Her 10-piece collection will be displayed on mannequins creating a still-life runway in the RALPH PUCCI Penthouse gallery with the designer in attendance presenting her work.
This year’s event marks the third-annual RALPH PUCCI New York Fashion Week exhibition in collaboration with Pratt. The showcase seeks to highlight the work of the next generation of up-and-coming artists.
Sodetz’s collection, which was presented at Pratt’s 2017 runway show in May, caught the eye of Ralph Pucci, Pratt Institute Trustee and head of RALPH PUCCI.
“When I saw the prints, colors and fabrics of Jessie’s collection I immediately thought what a fantastic collection. It’s modern, wearable and feminine but with masculine touches—perfect for a Pucci mannequin,” said Pucci.
The inspiration for Sodetz’s collection came from a personal reflection into areas of the designer’s personality, heritage, and spirituality. The collection, which features several menswear-inspired looks, highlights Sodetz’s artistic talent through hand-illustrated prints and a unique take on hand quilting.
