We don't like to play favorites. In fact, choosing our favorite designers is like choosing our favorite pizza topping — impossible. But, we have to admit, every year there are some front-runners we have starred on our hectic fashion-week calendars. Of course, you've got the big-hitting, household names that are sure to knock it out of the park. But, there is also a fashion farm league of sorts, on the brink of total stardom.
Ahead, we break down the designers to watch, the ones you might not know quite yet. Some are new, and some have been gliding under-the-radar for a while now. But, all are on-the-brink labels we can't wait to see in the coming week. We're looking to the outfield — now it's up to them to hit that home run.
