Feeling Haute Haute Haute

Glamorous fashionistas show a fresh face tonight.

From the low-budget runway shows you put on for Mom and Dad as a kid, to the way you stare longingly into boutique windows -- it’s safe to say you’ve always had a bit of a thread-lust. Now that you’re an adult, your tastes have matured with you. While you still lean toward the glamorous, you’ve also cultivated a devotion to fine lines, uncommon textures, and shapes that give poise and balance to a body’s form. That’s where Gen Art comes in. The organization is dedicated to showcasing the best emerging designer talent across the country.

Its biggest and grandest affair of the year – Fresh Faces in Fashion -- is happening tonight in South Beach at the positively plush Gansevoort South Hotel. This year’s installment features a jaw-dropping display of mostly regional designers, and it’s your chance to bat an eye at their newest clothing lines before they’re ripped away from the models and displayed proudly in boutiques nationally. And though everyone participating in the runway show is on fame’s cusp, our best bet for women’s wear comes from New York power team Bensoni. Created by Parsons alums Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon, the petal-like structure of the collection draped over willowy models gives you a glimpse of what Olive Oyl might have ascended to had she developed a passion for couture. Tickets cost $45 to $75. Get them before they’re off the rack by calling 305-695-8200 or visiting www.genart.org.
