GenArt’s Fresh Faces in Fashion Sp/Su ’13
Time to play catch-up in my ‘dresser diary’ entries… one of the shows I dressed for this year was GenArt’s Fresh Faces in Fashion. It was great to be backstage again! GenArt has been showcasing the best up-and-coming designers in the fashion world since 1994.
This year I dressed for Anne Sofie Madsen, a talented emerging designer. She hails from Denmark. Her designs were intricate and well thought-out. She used knuckle gloves in all her designs, whether attached to the dresses or an accessory to the look. Because the looks were so embellished and complex we used white Nike Airforce 1s to balance it out. She also used a grey bangs hairpiece with crystals and embellishments attached. The final outcome left attendees and those backstage equally breathless.
I had a wonderful time dressing for her. Her team was amazing. Here are the looks I dressed-
All these shots are from my cellphone. You can see all the Air Force 1s lined up and ready to be worn! There are shots of the hangers with model boards(these have shots of the look and the individual model who will be wearing it). There is also a photo of the model/mood board, this is used to put the whole designer’s show together(models, agencies, looks, sizes). It was so much better this year with one model for each look instead of repeating models and all the rushing of changing them in seconds like last year’s show! There are lots of photographs of backstage action! It is a show even behind the runway curtain!
