Mathieu Mirano has been dubbed the "mad scientist" of Fashion Week, and for good reason: In his fall/winter 2013 collection, he took a classically shaped black pencil skirt and embellished it with pieces of meteorites. At 21, Mirano is one of the youngest designers ever to show at Lincoln Center. From mathieumirano.com/Fernanda Calfat/Getty Images
Before launching his label of fur accessories in 2011, Brandon Sun, 31, worked for design powerhouses J. Mendel and Oscar de la Renta. Sun's ready-to-wear collections, which debuted at Fashion Week in February 2012, are known for pairing slim silhouettes with luxe accents, such as his signature furs.

The reunion of Destiny's Child may not have been the biggest surprise of Super Bowl XLVII's halftime show. Instead, it was Beyonce wearing a design by relative newcomer Rubin Singer. Singer, 34, was thrown into the spotlight with his black leather ensemble made of strips of iguana, python and cowhide. As a third-generation couturier, Singer has deep roots in the fashion industry and has worked with Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass and Kai Milla before starting his brand for the empowered woman.

Alexander Wang, 29, is one of New York's most beloved young sportswear designers. For industry insiders, Wang can do no wrong with downtown slouchy, edgy looks in his signature black palette. In 2008, Wang won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, receiving a year of business mentoring and $200,000. Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for H&M/Brian Ach/Getty Images
You may not be familiar with Marissa Webb (at least yet), but you've definitely seen her designs. Before launching her label in September with her spring 2013 collection, she was the head of womenswear and apparel design at the iconic brand J. Crew. Her signature look combines pairing a feminine aesthetic with menswear tailoring. Fernanda Calfat/Getty Images for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
Jonathan William Anderson, better known as the designer for J.W. Anderson, started in menswear but has since transitioned into womenswear, marching at the forefront of androgynous design. He received the Emerging Talent Award for Ready-To-Wear at the British Fashion Awards in 2012 and has collaborated with the retail giant Topshop. Ian Gavan/Stuart Wilson/Getty Images
Susanne Ostwald, 33, and Ingvar Helgason, 32, make up the London-based brand Ostwald Helgason. Also a couple (Ostwald is German, Helgason is Icelandic), the designers focus on bold prints and sculpted yet girlish silhouettes, which have helped make them the breakout stars of this New York Fashion Week.

In need of a glamorous, handmade cocktail dress? Katie Ermilio, 27, is your go-to girl. It's a fitting aesthetic considering she's a former Vogue intern and the granddaughter of Grace Kelly's personal clothier. She was also named to Forbes' "30 Under 30 list" in 2012.
