Gerlan Jeans is a line created by designer Gerlan Marcel, who designed prints for Jeremy Scott for five seasons; an influence reflected in her sidestepping of fashion convention, and urban streetwear vibe. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to attend, because both the runway show and the garments themselves where the most fun-spirited and tongue-in-cheek I saw this season. Gerlan funded her show through Kickstarter* and I don't doubt that achieving her funding goal contributed to the celebratory atmosphere of the audience.
Former Deee-Lite member, Lady Miss Kier, was in attendance, as was Baltimore rapper and M.I.A. protogé, Rye Rye.
