Celebrating Sofia’s graduation from Parsons


Dear Sofi,

Renowned trend forecaster and professor at Parsons School of Design, Li Edelkoort had previously stated it a few months ago: 2020 graduates would be throwing their caps inside their homes and not on a campus lawn. 

It probably never crossed your mind that you wouldn’t be able to enjoy this longstanding tradition during your graduation. While this is a lovely rite of passage, it is not as important as the knowledge, research, wisdom and friendships you have accrued during these four unforgettable years at Parsons.

Your experience goes beyond the academic setting and into the workplace, where you fulfilled various internships that garnered you a taste for the different facets of the industry. In these years, you worked at Oscar de la Renta, GQ, W Magazine, The Row, Cristina Ehrlich and currently with Gabriela Hearst. 

Ever since you were born, surrounded by all sorts of delicate fabrics and laces—it has seemed as if you were only getting closer to this moment. Perhaps it was that Colombiamoda Fashion Week where you watched along from your baby carriage or that collage you made at age seven with bits of silk or perhaps even all those shows where I held your hand as I walked down the runway during closing—all I know, is that you chose this path with clarity and determination a long time ago. 

The day you dreamed of so much has finally arrived and I hope you know how proud of you we are. 
May God bless you and shine a light on your exciting new path. 

Love, 
Mom

Sofy,

Li Edelkoort, la reconocida investigadora y profesora de Parsons School of Designya lo había anticipado: los graduados del 2020 tendrán que lanzar sus birretes al aire desde su propio techo y no en el cielo de un campus universitario. 

Seguramente Sofy, nunca imaginaste que este ritual no lo cumplirías hoy día de tu graduación. Pero esto solo se trata de un adorno de la vida. Lo verdaderamente fundamental son los conocimientos, aprendizajes, investigaciones y amistades que adquiriste durante esos cuatro inolvidables años en Parsons. 

Y no solo son las experiencias curriculares y personales, sino los invaluables conocimientos y vivencias adquiridas en la variada gama de internships en los que trabajaste en Nueva York: Oscar de la Renta, GQ, W Magazine, The Row, Christina Ehlrich, y tu actual posición en el staff de Gabriela Hearst.

Desde que naciste, rodeada de telas y encajes, parecía que orgánicamente todo te conduciría a este día de hoy. Tal vez fue aquella pasarela en Colombiamoda que observaste sentada en tu coche de bebe. O aquel collage que hiciste a los siete años con retales de seda, o esas salidas agarrada de mi mano a recibir junto conmigo los aplausos al final de los desfiles. Fue un camino que escogiste desde temprana edad pero con determinación y claridad. 

Ese día que tanto soñaste llegó hoy. Y todos en nuestra familia orgullosamente te felicitamos.

Que Dios te bendiga e ilumine en tu nuevo camino
