Each season, we live for the thrill of discovery. Not just finding new trends and the latest way to wear a smoky eye (there are just so many!), but searching for little-known designers who are finally getting recognition. Come this fashion week, five very worthy labels have caught our attention. Some are showing for the first time, some have presented at NYFW before. But all have one thing in common: They’re about to hit it big. After all, today’s newbie is tomorrow’s Marc Jacobs.
Meet your new favorite designers and get a glimpse of their Spring 2015 mood boards.
