Brooklyn style: 3 local designers you should know

With New York Fashion Week in full swing, all eyes in the Big Apple are on style.

While most of the action is taking place at Lincoln Center and other venues around Manhattan (“It” boy Alexander Wang showed at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during February’s NYFW, but is back in Manhattan this time around), much of the design talent these days is coming out of Brooklyn.

Don’t know the names Degen, David Hart and Stanmore yet? Well, you should: They’re three designers, with very different aesthetics and brands, working out of Kings County and using their borough for inspiration, community and the creation of their collections.
