Last October, the School of Fashion and the Arts (SoFA) presented nine brands from its in-house boutique, the Retail Lab. This month, SoFA once again teamed up with Fabric for the debut of several new names to add to the Retail Lab roster.

With 12 designers behind 5 different brands, the show provided an eclectic mix of themes and trends. While Mafia Couture and Schizo came out with bold looks that were high on edge, detail, and shine, other brands played with both feminine and androgynous pieces. Amour, Zarina, and Lauren Arielle showcased party-ready dresses for different girls, be they sultry vixens or vintage belles. On the other hand, C8, Bella, and Shique incorporated menswear-inspired vests, jumpsuits, and tuxedos into the show.
