This year's "100 Most Creative People in Business" index recognizes some of the fashion world's most promising up-and-comers.

Among the tech innovators and humanitarians on Fast Company's list of the "100 Most Creative People in Business 2015," released Wednesday morning, were plenty of familiar fashion faces. The honorees include Public School founders and DKNY creative directors Dao Yi Chow and Maxwell Osbourne, fashion illustrator and Estee Lauder creative director Donald Robertson, and Into the Gloss and Glossier founder Emily Weiss.

Also featured are brothers Dexter and Byron Pert, founders of Want Les Essentiels De La Vie, a brand that specializes in high-quality leather travel accessories. Another up-and-coming designer is 14-year-old Isabella Rose Taylor, who balances the pursuit of a fine arts degree (yes, she's already in college) with designing her own line of edgy juniors apparel, which is sold at Nordstrom.

On the publishing side, The Business of Fashion founder Imran Amed gets the spotlight for his work in quantifying the fashion industry and busting the stereotype that fashion is filled with just "a bunch of champagne-swilling party people." And for that, Imran, we thank you.
