With a line of fresh talent waiting for their shot at winning Saks‘ Emerging Designer Showcase, the final leg of yesterday’s competition was nothing short of thrilling. With hundreds of submissions to choose from, and only seventy-five indie designers eventually picked to present their collections to the fashion and buying offices, the stakes were undoubtedly high.

We want to nurture the future of fashion.”

Below, find the two winning designers that ultimately rose to the top and get ready to be the first to discover their innovative new labels at Saks later this year.

Roberta Einer

A recent graduate of the University of Westminster, Roberta Einer has made a name for herself with epic embroidery and beautiful embellishment. Hailing from Estonia, the designer sharpened her skills at Alexander McQueen, Balmain and Mary Katrantzou. Her talent has won her acclaim by the CFDA, receiving the distinction of Designer Graduate of the Year, 2015. Also in 2015, Einer was a recipient of the Newgen Sponsorship, courtesy of the British Fashion Council. “I always work with materials that excite me”, says Einer. “I think high fashion should be about creating and selling a dream – a dream of a happier, more beautiful world.”

Vetta

Cara Bartlett and Vanessa van Zyl dreamed up the ultimate capsule collection – then took fate in their own hands and made it a reality. The result is Vetta, an innovative new line of just 5 pieces – a blouse, tunic, two-piece dress, vest dress and culottes – that can be mixed and matched to create 30 chic outfits. Vetta’s first collection was made possible by co-founders and co-designers Bartlett and van Zyl’s successful Kickstarter campaign, which raised $90,000. Every piece is made locally and responsibly in their home base of New York City.
