Worshippers will find continued reasons to keep the faith in the “high priestess of Goth opulence”, as coined by Style.com. Although her new collection is a little lighter, acolytes (like Lady Gaga) will be pleased by LaPointe’s continued exploration of the sinister and dark, this time, via the inspiration of the deli.

New York Fashion Week has officially begun and as we’ve learned, more designers are showing than ever before. New York seems to breed new talent at an alarming rate compared to other cities. And while that may irritate established designers and make our schedules that much more insane, we love nothing more than being surprised and blown away by a name we’d never heard before.

Click through to learn about each one and why we think you’ll be seeing a lot more of them for seasons to come.
