One of the best parts of Fashion Week (besides the parties and celeb sightings) is seeking out new talent and feeling the love for emerging designers. Dont' get us wrong, big fancy labels are fabulous, sure, but there's just something so great about finding that special gem before anyone else. Now, thanks to Bloomingdale's new B Seen initiative — which chose three designers to showcase in its windows — we're getting a special look at some even more special talent.
The line we're most excited about is Daniella Kallmeyer —her fall '13 collection is chock full of all our favorites, including patterned knits, statement dresses, and buttoned-up blouses.

But, if luck doesn't come out on your side, just head down to Bloomingdale's Soho and ogle the windows.
