The Vibiana in Downtown LA was the place to be last night. GenArt's Fresh Faces in Fashion (presented by Moroccan Oil) garnered a standing-room-only crowd with quite a bit of arguing over front row seats. Overheard: "We are stylists and stylists sit front row." Well, that's not necessarily the case. Anywho, the show opened with an presentation from charitably-focused LA brand OmniPeace before its founder Mary Fanaro introduced the evening's stylish host, Catt Sadler of E! News.
The designers, Shaina Mote, CRYBABY Presents, and Korovilas each sent very unique Spring 2013 lines down the runway. Shaina Mote's collection featured a black-and-white palette and minimal styling while CRYBABY Presents showcased looks that were heavy on beach accessories (umbrella and wedges anyone?) with the addition of navy and stripes. Korovilas had the standout piece of the night, a stunning white lace gown with a leather waistband. The designers walked the runway with their models following the third presentation, signaling the end of the successful show.
Afterwards, guests headed out to the courtyard where the party continued with a set by Fire in the Hamptons, photo opts and more drinks by Voga Wine.—Catherine Wright
