Star Watch! 18-Year-Old Designer Daniela Jacobs Wows Us With Her Third Collection

Okay, we might be a little partial because 18-year-old designer Daniela Jacobs is our insanely gifted intern...but so what! The girl is ridiculously talented. She debuted her first collection of her label Allora at just 15 and she designs, patterns, and sews everything herself. And while she's already showing signs of a seasoned pro, she'll be attending Parsons in the fall to take her bad-ass designer skills to even new heights. Last night, she revealed her third Allora collection, presenting 40 looks in an intimate runway show at TriBeCa design store Room. Truth be told, this newbie got a better turnout than most designers at Fashion Week! In attendance were Steven Alan, Lisa Mayock, Teen Vogue's Naomi Nevitt and Evonne Gambrell, as well as yours truly. Take a look Daniela's handiwork...and consider yourself alerted. She is One to Watch.
