    One of the best things about our jobs is the opportunity to discover hot new talents before they make it big. There's nothing like following a designer from the beginning, and watching them grow into an international sensation. Take, for example, lines like Honor and Public School, labels we've supported since day one, which are now on everyone's radar.

    With New York Fashion Week wrapping up and a million-and-one shows to sift through, we've pulled out eight NYC designers who are about to have their moment. From a Lady Gaga favorite (she always knows the best people, doesn't she?) to a label inspired by late-socialite Nan Kempner, these lines are ready to join the big leagues. Click through to see who and what designers should be on your radar, and when they make it big, just remember where you heard it first!
