This past weekend it was my thrill to attend the Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion show. Gen Art is an organization that supports art in many forms, fashion being just one of them. Go find out more about them here. Gen Art has helped to launch the likes of Zac Posen, Rebecca Taylor, Milly and Philip Lim to name just a few.
I was joined by some of my favorite blogger friends; Lani of Mon Petit Chou Chou, Sarah of Style on the Couch and Naina of Style'n (and my sis who refuses to allow her photgraphs to be featured on this blog).
Actress Erika Christensen (Traffic, Parenthood), who has been in films that have benefited from Gen Art's philanthropy, made the opening remarks.
This fashion show featured designs from emerging designers Ann Yee, William Okpo, Sunghee Bang, ace & jig, Eighteenth and Jennifer Chun. You may recall a visit I paid to Jennifer Chun when she was at Louis Boston's Louis Exposure series (posts here and here) and the fact that she was chosen to participate in Gen Art's show was the main draw for me.
Attending the Gen Art show was truly a fantastic experience and was my little bit of NY fashion week.
As an added FYI, KORRES® was the show's makeup and skincare sponsor.
