From the unknown newbies to 3-year-old divas, this is our top 5 characters to watch.

Rosie Assoulin

Expectations are high for this designer after her collection’s debut. She’s also backed by fashion blogger Leandra Medine, AKA The Man Repeller (@manrepeller) whose work is also worth a look.

The American fashion designer has worked with GANT, however his reviews suggest he is one to keep an eye on in his own right.

Cara Delevigne

After being kicked to the curb by H&M after her recent alleged drug use, we’re keeping a close eye on the model of the moment, let’s see if anything else slips out her bag…
