THE LOOK: At a studio space in Culver City, Gen Art presented their ‘The New Garde’ where designers Coryn Madley, Society for Rational Dress, and Cosa Nostra showed live fashion collections and self-designed sets. The installations were an impressive and elaborate mix.
Coryn Madley, a St. Martins alum, showed intricate knitwear with a strong vintage-y vibe for her line, Madleyknow. The collection looked as if she’d scoured thrift stores and reworked her finds with lace, crochet pieces, and sparkly sequins.
Society for Rational Dress by Corinne Grassini offered sleek, minimalist style with silk baby doll tops and shorts in sherbet pastels paired with standout striped metallic boots.
Cosa Nostra by Jeff Sebelia and Michel Berandi was dark and avant-garde. Skull and bone detailing ran a bit goth, but the leather and denim pants were a hit.
SEEN: DJ Samantha Ronson played for Taryn Manning, Phoebe Price, Lourdes Colon, Lydia Cornell, and Meredith Phillips at Ten9Fifty Studios.
My favoriet shwos this season from LA where Gen Arts&Martin Martin , I also liked Trina Turk.
I was disapoitned taht some of my favoriets didn't show
i was dispointed by Louis Verdads show as well, i think eh fell alittle to much into his spanish style.
Ashley Paige and susanelizabeth were sorely missed. Loved the look of Frankie B. I liked Editte Keshihyan and some looks from Coco Kliks. Maria Bianca Nero came out with okay stuff too.
As far as a fashion week, L.A. really doesn't rank with the Big Four, the Brazilian or Iberian shows, I think.
Nothing here really stood out for me...
But she'll be back!
