Season in and season out, newcomers join the New York fashion week schedule, determined to make a name for themselves. Succeeding takes a great deal of talent, tenacity, business savvy, and a solid stroke of luck, but even Alexander Wang was just a Parsons dropout with a dream a few years back. Over the past several weeks, met with a slew of this year’s hopefuls to preview their forthcoming collections, and there are a few we’re particularly keen on. Brandon Sun did time at Oscar de la Renta and J. Mendel before setting out on his own just over a year ago. His luxe furs are already selling at Bergdorf Goodman and Saks, and his tweedy column dresses for Spring should connect with buyers, too. After skipping out on presentations for the past two seasons, Jonathan Simkhai is back on the circuit with a sporty lineup (pictured) full of board shorts and shifts. Other notables include Houghton’s Katharine Polk, who offers cool, printed silk separates à la Céline, and Tanya Taylor, whose second outing is inspired by the famed Sandy Lane hotel in Barbados circa 1961.
