NEW YORK - A Long Island designer is front and center at New York Fashion Week. 

He has dressed famous faces like Lady Gaga, Gabrielle Union, Elizabeth Banks and Julianne Moore. A-list actresses are lining up to wear his gorgeous gowns for the Academy Awards.

At just 24 years old, Huntington's Mathieu Mirano already has a huge fashion following. He showed his finest fall formal wear at New York Fashion Week.

Mirano says he learned all about style on Long Island from his mom, mom's friends and the beauty of Long Island.

He says his first store is going to be on Long Island. "It's my hometown, there's nothing the same as your hometown," he says.
