Gen Art’s Fresh Faces in Fashion Roundup

Oct 24, 2011 By Amanda

Saturday evening Gen Art made an impressive return with its Los Angeles Fashion Week event, Fresh Faces in Fashion. The much awaited show was hosted by our very own MyFDB co-founder, Zoe Saldana, and took place at the former cathedral of St. Vibiana in downtown L.A. Fresh Faces in Fashion presented by MyFDB and Moroccanoil featured 11 of L.A.’s top emerging designers. The event ranged in styles and genres and included womenswear, menswear, swimwear, and accessories.


Stephanie Lampkin’s line Odylyne captured a Boho chic vintage feel. The models came out in airy garments ranging from bright yellows, to pale blues, to white dresses with a pop of slightly hidden color. The looks were paired with detailed headpieces, and big hair.

One of my favorite looks by 71 Stanton



71 Stanton was a favorite of the night, designed by Ellis Yu and best described as California chic meets high-class sophistication. The play on fabrics gives the designs an extra edge pairing materials like jersey with silk chiffon creating a garment so versatile it could be worn to an afternoon brunch or a night on the town!

Cat eyes and pouty lips perfectly complete this 60's vibe style for Dear Creatures





Another MyFDB favorite was Dear Creatures. Designers Bianca Benitez and Rob Sinclair created a whimsical line that is truly timeless. The models were styled perfectly for the collection giving off a 60’s vibe with cat eyes and pouty lips.


Funktional’s name says it all: a funky take on wearable clothing. Los Angeles based designer, Jennifer Park, pairs modern style with high quality fabrics. The models completed the Funktional look with tribal inspired make up and headdresses.


Stand and Deliver takes the cake for having the most out of the box runway show. The rock n roll couture line created by Grammy nominated musician Corey Parks included an intense make out session, a fistfight, and even a skateboarder or two! Corey got her start by designing her own leather jackets while on tour and has since designed costumes for artists such as Rihanna, Marilyn Manson, and Ciara (talk about range!). The collection included a lot of black and a lot of leather (Rihanna’s S&M song comes to mind).

Stand and Deliver definitely delivered some punches that night!



The most artistic award of the evening goes out to Australian swimwear line, We Are Handsome, designed by Jeremy Jules Somer and Indhra Chagoury.  I don’t think I need to say much more because the designs speak for themselves.



A must have for all you “Team Jacob” fans ;) by We Are Handsome

Chambers Fall 2011 collection smells like Teen Spirit! Established in 2010 by Devin Carlson, Jake Denney, Matthew Goldman, and Jack Anderson III, Chambers is the epitome of 90s grunge. The models walked to a Nirvana soundtrack and sported styles full of flannel, varsity style jackets, and even had sweaters tied around their waists (if that doesn’t say 90s I don’t know what does!).



What is your favorite look from the show? For those of you who attended, what was your favorite experience?
