Everyone knows about household luxury design names such as Ralph Lauren, Versace, Balmain and many others. This article is not going to tell you about designers who are already hot, this will inform you about the up and coming designers that you need to know about in the industry!
Maya Ramirez is a 14 year old designing sensation! She was the very first winner of the fashion runway competition, Project Runway Junior. As not only the fiercest but youngest in the competition she wowed the crowd on a consistent basis with her mind boggling designs and heavenly tailoring and construction skills. Her finale collection was that of female warriors gone chic! The use of soft pastel colors against hard elements such as black leather and sharp cuts was a flawless juxtaposition that left all of the audience in awe. Since winning the scholarship to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and the cash prize to launch her line, she has returned to Ohio and began working on a line that will surely blow all of our minds! This kid is a sight for sore eyes because her talents and avant guard mind for creativity are off the wall!
