Fashion Week usually presents a frustrating catch-22 for people outside the industry: All the exciting shows are closed to the public, and all the shows that are open to the public aren't terribly exciting. Resurrected fashion incubator Gen Art presents an alternative this September 9 with their Fresh Faces in Fashion show, which showcases emerging designers like Osborn, ace & jig, and Sunghee Bang.
You might know some of these names—Osborn shoes are all over Williamsburg; ace & jig did an exclusive with Of a Kind—but even if you don't, you can probably trust Gen Art's taste. This is, after all, the same collective that supported Zac Posen, Rodarte, and Phillip Lim when they first got started. Head to Refinery for a slideshow of pieces
