In a sea of designers, it might seem hard to stand out amongst the crowded dropdown menus available with online runway shows and retailers.
Captivating an editor is hard enough, let alone the hundreds of buyers that can make or break a young designers future by picking up an invariably unknown collection the first season, and then presuming its consumers will feel just as passionate.
Something different, innovative, with an indiscernible coolness that resonates with anyone who comes in contact – that’s what will make a standout. Like these 5 designers – who are achieving just that. If you get a chance to see them in person – ask the sales person to tell you about them, every bit of interest helps a new kid on the block succeed, even if you can’t quite afford their creations yet.
