There's no occasion quite like the Fourth of July to celebrate all things American. Here at Fashionista, we'll be spending the week examining the fashion industry in our own backyard, from the state of U.S. apparel manufacturing to American-born models on the rise. You can follow all of our coverage here.

We've already told you that all-American star Grace Elizabeth is set to be the next supermodel, and there's no stopping the flow of Instababes coming out of the West Coast. But if you're like us, you're scouring the runways to find the fresh faces that are bound to become the next Karlie Kloss — no famous family needed. 

With that in mind and with the Fourth of July still rousing patriotic feelings in us, we rounded up some of the most promising homegrown talent from right here in the U.S. of A. You're going to want to give these girls a follow now, if for no other reason than having the satisfaction of telling your friends "I told you so" when they become megastars in a few seasons.
