Though this duo, sisters Darlene and Lizzy Okpo, showed a variety of looks, I fell in love with their tailored looks, particularly their pants. The collection from these Gen Art alumni designers featured modern feminine looks with masculine structure – favorites include the White Cape Shirt, Chambray Overalls and the Pink Button Up with Pinstripe Shorts.

Believe it or not, each look by this designer is made from a fabric they created. The idea behind the yarn-dye woven fabric was to create effortless clothes where the fabric could speak for itself.
The process of getting lost in the chaos of life and how we get tangled in knots is the inspiration for this eclectic collection. I especially love the wildness of the graphic print which adequately portrays the stress of daily life.
Named “the next big thing in menswear” by refinery29.com, Baron Wells’s collection featured effortless and easy menswear – the modern nomad with minimalist style.
This collection called “I gained 10 Pounds, but grew 10 inches” features over-sized t-shirts and denim jackets, extra wide skirts and denim shorts, extra long sleeves, and lots of asymmetrical silhouettes.
One of my two favorite collections of the night; I loved her mix of structured silhouettes with unconventional touches. Her collection was feminine with a mix of classic and modern chic.
My other favorite collection from the show, I love her use of geometric shapes, asymmetrical silhouettes and playfulness. Her collection was sweet with a touch of sophisticated whimsy.
