I still stand by the fact that if you can "discover" a designer far before they've peaked, you're getting your hands onto something special. Think how crazy it would have been had you got a piece from Proenza Schouler's very first collection or a sweater from Alexander Wang back from when he used to do only knits. I mean, talk about investment pieces! Those are something special. So now that GenArt is relaunching, it's the perfect time to brush up on designers that you may just have to have. They're showcasing all these new designers that are definitely worth checking out. You never know, they could just be the next big thing. So whether you're scouring the local young designer mart (I have yet to find a good one in LA) or stumbling onto someone poised to pop, you could be onto something big.
