NYFW Fall 2013: Five New Designers to Watch

As much as we adore seeing what our favorite NYFW veterans create each season—here's lookin' at you, Marc, Ralph and Oscar—it's the constant introduction of new designers into the Fashion Week pool that keeps things fresh and interesting. Presenting at New York's biannual shows offers invaluable exposure, infinite networking potential—and maybe, just maybe, the chance to become the next Jason Wu or Prabal Gurung.

So who's gonna be on our radar during the Fall 2013 collections? Click through to learn more about the five promising labels you should look out for.


Designed by Hanako Maeda, one of street style photog extraordinaire Tommy Ton's BFFs, this collection previously showed at Tokyo Fashion Week—and is arriving stateside for the first time ever this season. Judging by the slouchy knits and tailored shorts Maeda (ADEAM is her last name in reverse—cool, no?) cooked up last season, we can't wait to see what her NYFW debut brings.
