Gen Art Chicago, hello!

It was like a pop-up Bryant Park last night during Gen Art's Fresh Faces runway show in Millennium Park. The Midwest will always be the Midwest but Chicago tried to step up its fashion scene last night. Here's what we caught from the first row;).

Great shoes in the check-in line. Nice to see leather skirts are back.

The "I'm cool contest" outside the tent. Cornrows? Really?

Ah, finally inside. Time to scramble for a free drink.

How's it going back there?

Those Landon twins were across from us. How they saw the show without phonebooks is beyond me.

It was all this buzz about Pete Wentz and Clandestine Industries but he showed his face for 4 minutes and disappeared to get a super pregnant Ashley out the door as the show started. So technically, celebs were there?

Finally the show. This craziness that is actually 999 fake fingers was the most inspired thing in the show. Kudos to Frei Designs.

Another cool Frei look.

Black models are so in right now. The dress was by?????

The line Shorty was cutesy and Hawaiian looking but the best part was the hair. Crazy.

Then it was the dudes turn and this was refreshing. Philips Sparks is the designer's name, I think. Just happy to see men.



More yum.

Now the best part. Free stuff from the goody bag marketing to professionals between the age of 25-37 that dine out once a week, make over $45,000 per year and consider themselves trendsetters. Yeah! Go Aki go.

Shih Tzu not included.
