As a fashion editor, it’s part of my job to have my eye out for cool, rising brands so I’m constantly checking out the newness unfolding on Instagram, at retailers, and on the runways. With so much new talent out there and a lot of exciting designers worth noting at the moment, I want to shine a spotlight on some on-the-rise women-founded brands who are making their mark on the industry.
Each of these designers is carving out a strong point of view, landing themselves on the rosters of the world’s leading retailers, and cultivating a following amongst fashion insiders. Ahead, I’m diving into six cool rising female-founded brands to have on your radar right now. Their designs range from reinvented tailoring to vibrant colors and prints to gauzy knits—each crafting directional pieces you’ll want to add to your closet.
