We have to hand it to the 13 designers who have made the bold, risky and expensive decision to put themselves out there and show at New York Fashion Week for the first time. Even with support systems like Made Fashion Week, VFiles and the CFDA, it's hard out there for emerging designers with so many big names — Kanye West, for instance — taking up space on the schedule and on the Internet.

Of course, new talent is a big part of what makes Fashion Week feel new and exciting each season. So, read on for 13 names who could turn out to be the Proenza Schoulers and Marc Jacobs's of tomorrow.
