Just as the hope for cooler temperatures is arriving in Texas, designers in New York are showcasing their spring 2015 collections. The mix includes established veterans — Carmen Marc Valvo and Zang Toi are presenting their 25th anniversary shows — and newcomers — among the youngest are two Texans — Amir Taghi, 18, from Houston and Isabella Rose Taylor, 13, from Austin.
Taylor's collection has already been picked up by Nordstrom. Talk about instant success!
To kick off the fashion extravaganza, we asked a wide array of designers to offer a sneak peek of what they plan to show on the runway and where their inspiration came from.
Designer: Carmen Marc Valvo
Inspiration: "Living the American Dream."
