Ports 1961, HuffPost Style Showcase Designs From Parsons Fashion MFAs And Hetrick-Martin Youth During Fashion's Night Out 2012 (PHOTOS)

With so many options for Fashion's Night Out, it's hard to choose where to go. But HuffPost Style will be setting up shop at the Ports 1961 boutique in the Meatpacking District, where designs from Parsons' first graduating MFA in Fashion Design and Society class will be on display alongside pieces from The Hetrick-Martin Institute's most fashion-savvy youth.

New York-based HMI is the oldest and largest LGBTQ organization that fosters creativity and young talent in a safe environment, and Parsons' students hail from Japan, Taiwan, Australia and beyond, so it's no surprise that all their designs are exciting, surprising and very diverse. Take a peek at our gallery below to learn a little about each of the designers and hear what they each had to say about their collections, inspirations and more.

Then, if you're in New York for Fashion's Night Out on Thursday, September 6th, please come say hi at Ports 1961's store (3 Ninth Avenue at Gansevoort Street) between 7-10pm!
