Fragrances News by Parlux Fragrances LTD : Neiman Marcus, in partnership with Norell Fragrances and The New School's Parsons School of Design, announce Anthony Thomas Galante, the 2017 Norman Norell Design Award recipient, will debut his winning design in the 2017 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.

The award represents the culmination of the NORELL x PARSONS x NEIMAN MARCUS spring 2017 design course, challenging students to create an original look reflecting the legendary designer's heritage. A first for both renowned institutions, the course allowed students to realize their design potential, taking their concepts all the way from the classroom to the luxury consumer.

Galante, a 2017 Parsons graduate from Marengo, Illinois, designed a hand-sequined silk georgette gown. Demonstrating both a respect for the designer's legacy and an eye for innovation, Galante drew inspiration from Norell's classic style, reinterpreted with a modern twist.

Galante's winning look was selected by a noted committee of judges, including photographer, Michael Avedon; designer and author, Jeffery Banks; Parsons Dean of Fashion, Burak Cakmak; Neiman Marcus Fashion Director, Ken Downing; Fashion Group International President & CEO, Margaret Hayes; Parlux Fragrances, Ltd. President & Fashion Group International Chairman, Donald Loftus; CR Fashion Book Editor, Ray Siegel; and designer, Jason Wu.

"The great opportunity to research Norman Norell and the brand's extensive heritage was such a highlight of my time at Parsons. To have my Norell-inspired gown go from concept to sketch to sample, to then being highlighted in the Christmas Book and sold from the Neiman Marcus flagship store in Dallas, feels more special than I ever could have imagined," said Galante.

"Redefining the future of fashion can only be realized with a complete understanding and appreciation of fashions past," says Neiman Marcus Fashion Director, Ken Downing. "I was taken with Anthony's ability to capture the vocabulary, the emotion, and embrace the true craftsmanship of Norman Norell; these are marks of a great talent."

"We are excited to revive the spirit of Norell's iconic fashion through this incredible partnership with Neiman Marcus, as we celebrate the success of the newly-introduced Norell Fragrance Collection, and realize the dreams of this talented rising fashion designer," said Parlux Fragrances, LTD. President, Donald Loftus.

Galante's award winning Norell-inspired hand sequined silk georgette gown will be available for purchase by special order in the 2017 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book retailing for $2,500.00, alongside the new Norell Blushing fragrance ($150). Galante's winning look will also be featured in the Neiman Marcus Downtown Dallas flagship store.
