The Fresh Faces program is the largest and most recognized fashion event of its kind and is a catalyst for emerging designers in the industry, and over the years, many notable designers, such as Rodarte, Vena Cava, Zac Posen and Phillip Lim have participated in the program for one of their very first runway fashion shows. Several GenArt alumni have also gone on to win the coveted CFDA emerging designer award and the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award after their GenArt debut.
