So Fashion Week is officially over, and lots of hot new fashion debuted on New York’s catwalks. The amount of shows seemed to be on 100,000 this year, but we’ve curated a list of 10 Bomb Black Designers that should stay on your radar.

1. David Tlale
South African designer David Tlale melded contemporary with culture for his Spring 2015 show, offering a mix of African affiliated Dutch Super Wax Empire Vlisico fabrics with the more muted, hushed tones championed by New York brands.
Light catching pink, orange, and blush shared the stage with fantastically printed hot shorts, dresses, and vests, ensuring that everyone in attendance would find something to pique their sartorial senses.
A stunning range of black models, led by Tyson Beckford, ensured a spectacularly impactful visual onslaught.

Created by designer Ufuoma Ekpecham, UK brand Josh & Nicol strives to promote African pride without the typical attachment to Dutch wax prints and fabrics. Their collection, instead, encompasses easy chiffon and satin pieces, decorated with the side profile of Queen Idia, the 17th century warrior queen of the Benin Kingdom.

Tops and blazers boast a cameo of this powerful woman, telling the story of her attachment to bold jewelry, lipstick, and baubles with embellishments.
