Gen Art's Fresh Faces in Fashion presented by smart car and hosted by Erika Christensen, returned to New York Fashion Week at Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom on September 9th.

Seven ready-to-wear designers - Ann Yee, William Okpo, Sunghee Bang, Ace & Jig, Eighteenth, Jennifer Chung and Baron Wells showcased their looks, along with four accessory designers - Collina Strada, Falconiere, Osborn and Wool and the Gang.

My favorites are Ann Yee for her lightweight, effortless dresses and Sunghee Bang, with sexy, fitted edgy looks.

Sunghee Bang is inspired by being lost in the chaos of life, striving to untangle ourselves . Her pieces reflect an entaglement, the restriction of it, or liberation from it with the use of signature handknits and jersey with asymmetric shapes and loose draping or clinging pieces.
