Fashion designers can convert their ideas into appealing shapes and silhouettes, which might appear eerie to the casual observer. Throughout history, designers have revolutionized the world of fashion. Many women in the business have changed the way we see fashion and have pushed the craft forward through the years. While female fashion designers have carved out a place for themselves, the trend toward inclusion and diversity in fashion, buyers seeking inexpensive labels, and the growing demand for women to showcase their individuality via fashion are all effectively breaking through the glass runways. A growing number of female fashion idols have given young female dreamers optimism that their creations may be effectively translated into popular and stylish clothes.

Let's have a sneak peek at the iconic women fashion designers, the impactful presence of today's divas, and the top ten women fashion designers to watch out for.

How today's women fashion designers are making a concrete way to success

Today's female fashion designers are an irresistible force to be reckoned with, from founding namesake companies to exploring new boundaries in fashion design. The billionaire design director of Prada is Miuccia Prada. Miuccia successfully created Miu Miu as a more inexpensive, daily wear collection for women, as well as a men's fashion brand, and has built the Prada house as a profitable conglomerate. 

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, twin sisters, are fashion designers whose clothing line caters to girls aged 4 to 14. Their designs are the go-to name for young girls all over America since they are created with their everyday style in mind. 

Vera Wang's wedding line has gained popularity, thanks to high-profile brides including Alicia Keys, Chelsea Clinton, Victoria Beckham, Ivanka Trump, and others. Wang now creates outfits for Olympic figures and is a celebrity favorite for evening attire. Wang continues to provide comfort and elegance, and she is regarded as a fashionista who continues to inspire the industry. 

Anita Dongre, who was born in Mumbai, has been a fixture in India's fashion industry with her clothes and jewelry designs. But when Kate Middleton donned one of her outfits in 2016, everyone sought to replicate the look. Beyoncé, Sophie Turner, and Priyanka Chopra have all worn her pieces, and she has a flagship store in New York City.

In the middle of the high-profile glitter of fashion week, fresh stars emerge to debut their creations for the very first time. We're always interested to see what new views bring to the table—part of the excitement of fashion is that it's continuously changing. We're looking for designers that aren't only making great garments but are also concentrating on local craft, innovative techniques, and pushing the frontiers of sustainability. 

Here are ten designers to keep an eye on this season:

  1. Grace Wales Bonner

Her eponymous company, which debuted in 2014, began as a menswear label before expanding into womenswear. The apparel is inspired by African and European history, and the tailoring is just amazing.

  1. Kyemah Mcentyre
Women/Minority Fashion Designers

Kyemah Mcentyre's specific detailed prom dress got much attention a few years ago, leading to a New York Fashion Week appearance. She's now selling t-shirts on her website, demonstrating her versatility as a designer.

  1. Rihanna

Rihanna is breaking new ground in beauty and fashion with her revolutionary cosmetics range and sought lingerie brand.

  1. Carly Cushnie

A Parsons graduate, Carly is the brains behind one of our favorite fashion brands, Cushnie. After rebranding early this year, the wunderkind designer pushed femininity to new heights with her 2019 spring collection, which included even more vivid materials and hues. 

  1. Anifa Mvuemba
Women/Minority Fashion Designers

Hanifa is the brainchild of Anifa Mvuemba, a Teen Vogue "Generation Next" graduate. Mvuemba released Hanifa in 2012 and hasn't stopped since. 

  1. Tia Adeola

Teni "Tia" Adeola, who was born in Nigeria, is yet another Teenage Vogue "Generation Next" graduate who enjoys art history and infuses it into her designs. Tia's designs contain a variety of Renaissance-inspired organza ruffles.

  1. Aurora James

In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, James created the "15 Percent Pledge," which was introduced this year to offer greater shelves to Black companies in retail outlets.

  1. Fe Noel

Designer Fe Noel's beautiful robes, swimwear, and ready-to-wear will actually brighten up your day with stunning outfits.

  1. Dumebi Iyamah

Specializing in swimsuits, designer Andrea Iyamah's breathtakingly colored designs have something for everyone (yes, even for brides!).

  1. Mowalola Ogunlesi
Women/Minority Fashion Designers

The Nigerian-British designer will lead Kanye West's new Gap collaboration's Yeezy design team. She also has her own collection, which has exciting pieces fit for a night out, such as long-sleeve bra tops and cutaway dresses.
