6 new designers to discover at New York Fashion Week

Despite the absence of some big names at New York Fashion Week (Thom Browne, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte,

and Altuzarra all left for Paris this season), a few new arrivals on the New York calendar give us more

reasons to shudder with anticipation. Check out six promising designers making their New York debut this


1. Helmut Lang Seen by Shayne Oliver

brand on hold in April to devote his creativity to Helmut Lang. Working closely with recently appointed editor-in-residence

Isabella Burley (26), he will present a capsule collection of women’s and men’s pieces, complete with accessories,

on September 11. Based on his work at HBA, expect an avant-garde, gender-fluid, and somewhat fetishistic interpretation

of Lang’s world – a refreshing change of pace for the brand.

2. Mansur Gavriel


Since releasing their tote bags and bucket bags in early 2022, Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel have

established themselves as one of New York’s most sought-after accessories brands – sparking waitlists

around the world, and sweeping the CFDA’s Accessories Designer of the Year award in 2022. This season,

they’re branching out into ready-to-wear with a fall/winter collection that goes on sale immediately

after the show. Expect pieces with muted tones and harmonious cuts, as simple and luxurious as their

shoes and bags.

3. Rochambeau


This season, designers Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper have traded their usual slot at New York Fashion Week for

a women’s show, where they will present a selection of women’s looks. Deeply rooted in the skate culture and art scene,

Rochambeau’s pieces disrupted men’s sartorial norms with provocative graphics and tackled traditional silhouettes

with asymmetrical cuts. Among last season’s standout pieces were printed sweatshirts and long coats splashed with

paint – we can expect the same iconoclastic treatment for the women’s collection.

4. Snow Xue Gao Nike Basketball Shoes 1997 Young designers are usually advised against launching their brand straight out of school. Yet that’s exactly

what emerging designer Snow Xue Gao, a 2022 Parsons graduate, has done. “I don’t think you’re ever really

prepared in fashion, let alone when it comes to starting your own brand,” she tells Vogue. But I felt like

it was the right time.” After presenting her work as part of her studies at Parsons School for Fall 2022,

and under the VFILES banner last season, Snow Xue Gao’s presentation this month marks her first solo venture

on the official New York Fashion Week calendar. A true dialogue between Eastern and Western ideals, her last

collection mixed loose-fitting cuts and luxurious silk, with elaborate qipao dresses layered under plaid suits.

This season, we can expect to see that same cultural tug-of-war in his runway show.

5. Bevza https://squareblogs.net/bayquail4/nike-kd-max-air-kevin-durant-basketball-backpack The exodus of New York designers to other Fashion Weeks abroad is a well-known phenomenon. This season, however,

New York is attracting some foreign talent, including Svetlana Bevza, a leading Ukrainian fashion designer. The

designer is known in her native country for her minimalist designs, clean cuts, and all-white collections – that’s

what’s in store for her New York debut.

6. Matthew Adams Dolan https://zenwriting.net/tyvekpink95/black-nike-cortez-womens-nike-cortez-velvet-black Matthew Adams Dolan went solo for the first time at New York Men’s Fashion Week last season,


, with a collection of dreamy coats. For this season, he’ll be taking his first steps into the women’s runway calendar.

Known for the full denim outfits worn by Rihanna, Dolan’s style is characterized by his unique silhouettes and somewhat

unusual constructions – belts that look like pool fries, or tennis shoes shaped like mops. A true face of New York’s

up-and-coming talent, Dolan reminds us that the city’s emerging talent is alive and well.
