Plastics Make it Possible and Gen Art will celebrate four emerging designers at the "New Garde" Fashion Show, kicking off New York Fashion week. Designers presenting include the duo known as WesFeld, who won a nationwide competition to earn a spot at the show. WesFeld is comprised of two former Project Runway contestants, Daniel Feld and Wesley Nault and they will be showcasing their new collection, made out of entirely plastic and plastic-based materials, alongside some of the industry's hottest rising talent.
The "New Garde" show features live model installations in a dynamic, non-traditional fashion presentation featuring elaborate set designs, enabling designers to create a cohesive mood and environment for their work. This year, hosted by actress, model and designer Molly Sims, Gen Art's show traditionally attracts more than 1,000 attendees. Past designers include Project Runway winner Jeffrey Sebelia, Geren Ford, Society for Rational Dress, FORM and Kit Pistol.
