    Drumroll please...Tanya Taylor. Though she's a name you may be a bit less familiar with, take note. In just her second at-bat on the NYFW roster, Taylor has already garnered tons of buzz, and really, when your sophomore year show is at the MOMA, we're sure it's safe to say those flashing bulbs won't fade anytime soon.
