Gen Art’s Fresh Faces in Fashion: Chicago- The Show
I had the honor of attending Gen Art’s Fresh Faces in Fashion show. Gen Art, is a non profit dedicated to promoting emerging artists, filmmakers and fashion designers. Fresh Faces is credited to launching designers Zac Posen, Rebecca Taylor and Chaiken. This year the line up included: Abigail Glaum-Lathbury, Apparatchik, Biasline by Soo Choi, Dieter Bennet, Moire Conroy, Nora Marcella, and Wrath Arcane.
I was so excited to go to this show because I hadn’t been back since 2003. Back then I was a lowly intern that fetched Starbucks and answered phones and all I had to show for it was a load of free champaign and some makeup samples (okay, so it wasn’t half bad!)
In the last 4 years the show has gone from a small theater to a tent(a-la-fashion week) in Millennium Park. I was blown away at how professional and elaborate the show has become.
Here are a few pics from the show.
