WHO RUN THE WORLD?

Three designers to have on your radar this International Women’s Day

MAISIE SCHLOSS
Though she debuted Maisie Wilen less than a year ago, the collection is already one of the buzziest around.

CV: After graduating from Parsons with a degree in womenswear, Schloss worked for Kanye West’s brand, Yeezy, and became the first designer to receive support through West’s creative incubator for young talent.

Fashion icons: Bjork, Dolly Parton, and Grace Jones

Personal style: Eccentric with an emphasis on print and color

Process: Schloss starts by collecting inspiration and then creates prints digitally, experimenting with color and effects.

Known for: Body-con dresses with neon prints and strategically placed bars of color that curve with the body

 

 

ROSETTA GETTY
She established her eponymous fashion line in 2015 and has been one to watch ever since. 

Based in: Los Angeles with her husband, Balthazar, and the couple’s four children

Aesthetic in three words: Elegant, minimal, eccentric

Calling card: Transitional pieces with bicoastal appeal

Inspiration: Getty partners with a different artist each season to define the palette and mood of her collections. Previous artists include Analia Saban, Alicja Wade, and Anna-Sophie Berger. 

Her latest: Featuring architectural shapes and unexpected color combinations, the spring 2020 collection was inspired by the Bauhaus archives at Getty Research Institute.

 

 

STEPHANIE DANAN
Danan founded the Los Angeles-based brand CO in 2011 with her business (and life) partner Justin Kern.

International ties: Danan was raised in Morocco, Montreal, and Paris. Her aesthetic combines elements from all locations with a North American sense of practicality. 

Design philosophy: Create a line of luxury essentials that form a considered, cohesive wardrobe.

Fashion heritage: Her mother was an accessories designer and her father owned a multi-label showroom.

Other talents: Film. Danan was a development executive with Focus Features before transitioning to fashion.

Co signatures: A-line silhouettes and voluminous pieces influenced by Japanese fashion
