New Year, New Talent

Sorry for the somewhat lengthy hiatus! I've been so busy adjusting to college life at Washington University in St. Louis and have devoted much of my blogging energy to my new post as a staff writer for my school's fashion magazine, Armour.
In honor of the coming New Year tomorrow, I scoured the web for inspiring collections produced for 2015. And while any fashion lover is a big fan of the great established labels, it’s more difficult to find many people with whom to to share an appreciation of emerging talent. But it’s important to keep in mind that lesser publicity and availability of garments does not denote a less skilled designer. Here are a two young American designers to look out for in the coming seasons.
