New York Fashion Week is officially in full swing and the city is abuzz with feverish excitement over world-renowned designers set to showcase their latest creations on the runway. Editors, fashion buyers and enthusiasts alike have been counting down the months to this infamous week full of inspiration, enviable street style and a pinch of celebrity hobnobbing. But for many up-and-coming designers not quite in the glare of publicity yet, NYFW is the event of a lifetime.

Coming off of a high of praise and curiosity from previous shows, a new set of designers are here to claim their stake in the fashion industry. These NYFW underclassmen, many the participants of MADE Fashion Week, are sure to be household names before you can say 'Maison Martin Margiela.' And with Fashion Week conventions being broken more than ever (bye, bye Lincoln Center and hello Brooklyn!), designers like Azede Jean-Pierre and Charles Harbison are primed to take center stage. Rousing critics with their spring/summer 2014 collections, these are the NYFW designers you haven't heard of but are about to love.
