Los Angeles Fashion Week Recap...GenArt @ Style Fashion Week
Written by Doug Haley
With so many well deserving and under-appreciated designers itching to have a presentation during LA Fashion Week, I looked forward to seeing who the GenArt team had selected to highlight as emerging artists. GenArt selected 3 designers that I was unfamiliar with to showcase full runway show collections: Crybaby Presents, Shaina Mote, and Korovilas.
The Shaina Mote collection was hyper casual, flowing silhouettes in monochromatic clothes certainly looked California comfortable. As for Korovilas I was impressed with the tailoring and gorgeous silhouettes. She is without question a talented designer who should not be overlooked.
In an over saturated market of fashion I applaud GenArt for showcasing emerging designers who often do not get the respect or spotlight that they deserve however I think GenArt might want to send some undercover employees out into the streets of LA to find emerging fashion designers who are more creative and more in touch with the art/fashion aesthetic. I know they exist: one only needs to attend a a StayDripped event in Downtown Los Angeles to see where the future of LA Fashion lives.
