Backstage at Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion LA

Becs and MelI’m wearing a Hurley dress, H&M jacket, Bebe belt, Jeffrey Campbell Mel shoes (that you can’t see), necklace and bracelet via Varga and Topshop bag (to lug my Rebel camera around).  Mel (my twinny) is wearing my vintage 80’s dress via Nasty Gal.

BackstageIt was great to finally meet Nora from Fashion + Geometry (3rd from left)!

Kaley CuocoHost of the night, Kaley Cuoco from The Big Bang Theory, dressed in the latest plastic fashion trends

Below are some shots I snapped backstage before the shows kicked off.  The models all looked so amazing… and now I want to go out and buy a hair crimper.

Last night’s 12th Annual Gen Art “Fresh Faces in Fashion” Show presented by Plastics Make it Possible was amazing.  Held at the Petersen Automotive Museum, it was the Official Opening Show for Rock Fashion Week Los Angeles and showcased cutting-edge designers and artists, and how plastics are shaping the future of fashion and design.

Womenswear designers Leyendecker, Rory Beca, Seneca Rising, Valerj Pobega and menswear designer MG Black rocked the runway.  Really liked all the collections but my personal fav was Seneca Rising for the vibe of the overall show and styling.  I’ll be posting photos of some choice runway looks, but in the meantime, hope you enjoyed seeing my photography skills put to the test backstage.

Hope you all have a fun Halloween weekend!
