So many designers, so little time

Saying this may age me, but I remember a time when there really wasn't that many designers to follow. There were the big houses that everyone knew, and a couple of rogue designers that had their own totally different esthetic. But within the past decade a lot has changed. Really even only within the past few years. This change has taken place specifically in New York, where the fashion scene has been much changed and invigorated by a great number of new designers that represent fresh talent. Alexander Wang, Philip Lim, Prabal Gurung, have become superstars, and there are more new designers coming to the scene all the time, including Jason Wu, Vena Cava, Ohne Titel, Sophie Theallet, Richard Chai, Project Runway winner Christian Siriano, etc.. With the New York fashion week going on right now, it is hard to keep track of all the designers that I want to check out and follow. Here are a couple of favorite picks.
Richard Chai - Lovely and very wearable - and of course Finland's "own" Suvi Koponen looks absolutely amazing!
Christian Siriano - talk about wearability - I could put this on any day!

Richard Chai - what a beautiful silhouette this outfit has!

Of course I still love my Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, but these fresh designers bring a lot of interest and youthfulness to the fashion week.
