The Real Design Stars: Meet The Fresh Faces At Gen Art

We always mark out calendars for Gen Art’s Fresh Faces event for a few reasons. One, it’s the best showcase of up-and-coming West Coast talent, and this year we can’t wait to see the offerings from Iman Toloui, Plomo, Sticks & Stones and Tom Tom, followed by a fashion show featuring the runway debut from women’s ready-to-wear designers 71 Stanton, Dear Creatures, Funktional, and Odylyne among others. And second of all, it’s always a blast to see the fashion community come out, party, and celebrate our local design stars. For $85, you can come to the gorgeous Vibiana to toast the town’s most-talented alongside host Zoe Saldana, sip on complimentary bevies, and soak up a show filled with inspirational designers and clothes that will have you drooling for more. And, since the weekend is still a few days away, why not whet your appetite with these breath-taking images featuring just a few of the designs you’ll be feasting on come Saturday?
When: Saturday, October 22, Accessory Pre-Reception, 6:00 p.m.; Runway show, 7:00 p.m.; After-party, 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Where: Vibiana, 214 South Main Street (at West Second Street); no phone.
