Nobody can call himself or herself a fashionista without, at least, a basic knowledge of all the major designers of the fashion world. The reason why this is important is simply that if you do not know the who’s who of the fashion world, then you will never be able to keep pace with all the developments in it. Resultantly, you would not be able to stay current with all the trends and fads either. Therefore, it is crucial for you to know, at least, five major names of the fashion world. Here is a list for your convenience.
Even people who do not have any interest in fashion are aware of a name like Versace. The brand was founded by a stalwart of the fashion world, namely Gianni Versace back in the year of 1978. When it comes to fashion lines, Versace boasts of Versace Couture, Versace Jeans Couture, Versace Home Collection, Versus, and Versace Collection. Some celebrities known for wearing Versace include Elton John, 2Pac, Elizabeth Hurley, Beyonce and even the elegant Princess Diana.
The name Armani has, over the years, become synonymous with the whole concept of high profile and expensive fashion items. Armani is a brand that was established by the fashion legend Giorgio Armani. Armani is not only a pillar of high fashion but is also a resounding name in the Italian American working class. A highlight of the Armani brand is hip styles juxtaposed on bold vibrant colors.
3. Dolce And Gabbana:
Dolce and Gabbana or, as they are more popularly known, D&G is a brand created by the exceptional designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The brand started out in Milan of Italy and has since grown into one of the powerhouses of the fashion world today. Although Dolce and Gabbana are more popularly known as D&G, it is just one of the two brands of the company. The other one is Dolce&Gabbana.
Gucci is another brand name that originates from the fashion capital of the world i.e. Italy. As is the trend with fashion trends, Gucci was founded by Guccio Gucci back in 1921 in the city of Florence, Italy. Gucci is one of the most widely spread fashion brands in the world today and the company even directly owns and manages some 278 stores throughout the world.
France’s entry into this list of top five designer clothing brands is Christian Dior or just Dior. The biggest thing about the Dior lines is their dynamic nature or the way that they never remain the same. Dior is known for its wide range of styles and designs as it does not conform to any one aspect of fashion. The brand is able to do this and still be successful because its head designer John Gailiano has a tendency to be ahead of the curve when it comes to fashion trends.
Although the above mentioned five clothing line brands can be said to be the top five in existence today, other brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Yves Saint Laurent should also be included.
