The Fresh Faces

Gen Art did it again by delivering a beautiful runway show and an intimate after party that featured the newest young designers Chicago has to offer. The show was held in Millennium Park in the Promenade Tent that was packed with attendees. Before the runway show, three accessory designers showcased their newest collections. Among them were Kate Mitchell of “Twig designs” with her nature and urban environment pieces, Sara Czosnyka of “Samsara Design” with her accessories that were classic and sleek and Tonia Kim of “Toki Collection” with her travel and fairy-tale influenced jewelry line. The runway show started off with spring lines featuring Sophia Reyes, Frei Designs, Shorty Clothing, Elise Bergman, Eskell, and Phillip Sparks. The show ended but the buzz continued on at the after party at En-Vent, a raw space in the West Loop that was transformed into a haven where guests chatted up the show they had just seen.
