Last night, Chicago's own Christina Fan premiered a sample of her Fall 2010 collection in the posh West Loop Dubhe Carreno Gallery for GenArt members, fashion insiders and media. C/FAN, which was also featured in last years Fresh Faces fashion show, presented an unusual assortment of vests, dresses, shorts, and skirts that have a work-to-play versatility that can fit any lifestyle. The models glowed on the tiny viewing space/runway (adorned with an art installation (Le Cirque de L’Armée Rouge) featuring scary brown babies) while the garments swayed effortlessly on their figures. The lightweight fabrics looked comfortable even as the quality was rich and luxurious. Fan's pallet was simple, focusing on grays and blacks with an occasional pink to spice up the party. The aesthetic was rocking, and the tone was unapologetic—the right combination for a new decade in woman's wear.
