GenArt Fresh Faces

---Recap of the GenArt Fresh Faces fashion show in Los Angeles from a couple weeks back! ---

Gen Art's Fresh Faces in Fashion event on October 29 was the opening night of Rock Fashion Week in Los Angeles. White tents at the Petersen Automotive Museum played venue host to the Spring 2010 runway collections of Leyendecker, Seneca Rising, MG Black Label menswear, Valerj Pobega, and Rory Beca.

For the event I ditched my recent shopping buys and pulled out my favorite vintage pieces. I'm wearing a vintage embroidered vest by Sue Wong, vintage lace skirt worn as a dress, fur collared zip-up hoodie by DKNY, feather hair piece from Japan, and black pumps by Enzo Angiolini.

First in the lineup was Leyendecker. I loved the leggings in the third picture. DIY??

Closing walk of Leyendecker.

The Seneca Rising collection was simple casualwear. My favorite part was the socks plus sandals though I don't think these strappy sandals go with the light and airy rompers and jumpsuits.

MG Black Label is one of the few menswear collections I've seen recently. If you ever wanted to see how the leggings plus shorts combo translated for men, just check below! It works in the third picture where the shorts meet the knee, but not so much in the second picture where the shorts hit mid thigh. I thought the mullet hair in the first picture was awesome.

Valerj Pobega was the most avant garde of the group like punk/goth meets medical supplies experiment. The colleciton, which featured deconstructed dresses in sheers and charmeuse, kimono sleeves, and long ropes dangling naughtily, left me with an eery feeling. To top off with accessories, all the models were fitted with jaw retainers made from ropes and dark eyes.

Closing the night was Rory Beca. Definitely something I could imagine myself wearing with it's mix of indie casual and sweet cocktail chic pieces. The running theme of the collection was the red soled Louboutins!

Also, snapped a few of the best dressed attendees. Here's Chelsea's outfit. All vintage and inspired by Japanese lolita fashion. A very structured wired skirt, splattered patterned stockings, square box purse, and little hat from Japan!

Carmel, left, was wearing a beaded military style jacket by Chanel and studded Louboutins. Kendra, right, is wearing Luella.

  31. making an ice-cream cake wasnt as easy as ABC as the video showed it to be! the moment i removed the cake mould, it starts to melt so so quickly - maybe cos its been really warm over here lately!

    ...but the experience was definitely a FUN one!
