Contunued support for emerging design talent is a year-round affair for us - as we've said in the past, "If you’re awesome at what you do and nice to your friends, they will oftentimes turn into your best publicists."
So tonight District L will be in delighted attendance at the Lower East Side's Lu Magnus Gallery for New Fashion: Works by 6 Emerging Designers. Among the roster are labels Afterlife, Guy French, Rrose Sélavy, The Sway, and Stephen Zerbe, but most importantly for us is R+R, the line by personal favorite and friend Rebecca Formichella and partner Rita Watson.
We first covered uber-talented SCAD grad Rebecca back in December, taking a close look at her then most recent line.. We were impressed by their clever balance of romance and audacity, lending a stark austerity to otherwise soft and feminine shapes.
So if you're all bereft that NYFW is over, fear not - there's still plenty of fashionizing to be done and tonight at Lu Magnus (55 Hester between Ludlow and Essex) is the place to do it.
