PARSONS HONORS: “This woman is a David Bowie…a Mick Jagger,” remarked Betsey Johnson Thursday night at Parsons The New School for Design’s AAS Line Debut showcase for students in its Associate in Applied Science program. The designer, in pigtails, was on hand to award Fern Mallis the school’s first-ever AAS Icon Award. When guests got a little rowdy — free-flowing booze and coeds may not be the best event combo — Johnson wasn’t afraid to shush the crowd. “Shhh! Come on, kids,” she said, adding a quick “I’m looking to hire” that brought the audience to quiet attention. Other designers present included Jen Kao, who received the Stacey Nipps Alumni Award; Tom Scott and jeweler Eddie Borgo.
