New York Fashion Week - Female Favorites

Time flies, London Fashion Week is already over as well, and I am still working my way through the New York shows. And while I did, I noticed that many of the biggest fashion names in this city are males (Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren). Notable exceptions are Diane von Furstenberg (whose creative director now is a man also, that’s why I didn’t list her here) and Carolina Herrera. Then Rodarte, Anna Sui and The Row, but these brands don’t have the universal recognition that the above fashion designers have. So lots of room to grow here!
