Does the holiday get you in the mood to be creative with your wardrobe? If so, you’re in luck. Below are 5 game-changing Fashion Designers who forged their own path and influenced their way into the world of fashion and of course, Hollywood.
The featured designers here are not new. Chances are you’ve drooled and oohed-ahhed over their looks without knowing their names. Follow them on Instagram and you’ll definitely be inspired to step up your game.
Alex Perry is an amazing Australian designer and TV presenter on Project Runway. I can stare at his clean and minimal yet incredibly structured designs all day and literally pin every look. He's dressed many famous femmes including Nicole Kidman, Kim Kardashian, and my favorite girl, Sandra Bullock.
For lovers of glam and glitz, British designer Julien MacDonald should be your obsession. His sparkly creations with intricate details of sequins and beads have been adorned by Hollywood fashionistas like Bella and Gigi Hadid, Eva Longoria, and Gwen Stefani.
Bao TranChi or as she's known as the designer that makes Jennifer Lopez the sexiest woman alive again. This Vietnamese American designer's work is daring and definitely not for the shy. She turns cut-outs into an art form. Warning, do not browse her collection while at work. You may be judged *wink*. Some have described her clothing line as provocative, sexy, and even slutty. For those who dare to bare like Nicki Minaj and Rita Ora, they can’t wait to be form fitted into her custom creations.
Peter Dundas dressed Beyonce, Taraji P Henson, and the mysteriously famous Zendaya. If you don't know his name, you did not pay close enough attention at the last Grammy's. He was the breakout genius behind Queen Bea's gold goddess break-the-internet masterpiece. After leaving Roberto Cavalli, Dundas is now the name that A-listers repeatedly request for.
Jason Wu is easily the coolest designer on my list. Two words: Michelle Obama. The former First Lady made him an instant star when she chose his off-the-shoulder couture gown at President Obama's inaugural ball and then wore his design again as her final appearance as First Lady. This talented Taiwanese-Canadian designer based in NY makes sophisticated women’s wear for the confident and fierce. Once an artistic director for Hugo Boss is now a force to be reckoned with with a long list of accolades and accomplishments at only 35 years young! The long list of starlets he's dressed goes on forever including Rihanna, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, and many more.
