Gen Art Announces New Designers, Will Show at New York Fashion Week
Gen Art, that incubator of new design responsible for launching the careers of Zac Posen and Philip Lim, has been sorely missed the past two years while it's been on hiatus to deal with financial troubles. Now under new ownership, the organization has trained its eagle eye on a new cadre of up-and-coming designers. Gen Art is going to spotlight six ready-to-wear designers, one men's wear designer, and four accessory designers. Ace & Jig, Ann Yee, Eighteenth, Jennifer Chun, Shunghee Bang, William Okpo, and Baron Wells will make their runway debut at New York Fashion week, WWD is reporting.
