In the fast-paced fashion industry, roles and responsibilities are ever-changing. So we created this crash course of who to watch at Spring 2015 New York Fashion Week. From vetted designers to up-and-coming stars on the rise, keep an eye out for these coveted names.
This New York duo burst onto the fashion scene in 2013 by winning the Swarovski young men’s designer award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America and the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. The designers are New York natives and bonded over their love for New York, and they’ve been featured in various top tier pubs for their simple designs.
Oscar De La Renta named Copping as the Creative Director of the infamous brand just a week before passing. Copping’s feminine and graceful designs were deemed as a good fit for this fashion empire, so his talent and direction will be interesting to watch this year.
Collina Strada is beloved by celebrities like Blake Lively and creates relaxed and whimsical apparel for women. Her second runway line for Fall/Winter 2015 will show this spring, and is already being sold at Oak, Assembly, and Frank Segel.
This tried-and-true designer left Louis Vuitton last year after 16 years to focus on his own brand. He went from working mostly in Paris to his native New York. Jacobs can now feel grounded at his namesake that is approaching nearly a billion dollars in sales.
This designer on the rise has apparel for the modern and fast-paced woman, and will debut at Barney’s this spring. Youssef has credentials from the well-known Parsons New School and Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, so his impressive background will serve as a good foundation for his next collection.
