9 Brands You're About to See on Every Fashion Girl You Know

The fashion industry is always evolving and that includes the talent within it. Discovering and celebrating emerging brands is one of my personal favorite endeavors as an editor so it is with great pleasure that I present you nine of the emerging designers that have been on my radar this year. Below you will find a mix of designers and brands that are both brand new and currently having a major moment in the spotlight. 

As you scroll through the below nine emerging brands, take time to read some important facts about each, click through their Instagram pages (I also suggest a follow), and shop some of the pieces that confirmed to me that each and every one of these emerging designers is bound to be seen on the likes of fashion girls and influencers all over the world.

Championing up-and-coming talent is one of the most important things we can do as shoppers, editors, and creators, and hopefully, the list below will bring forth some names that are new and exciting to you now and for the long haul.
