Although we love Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, YSL, and Chanel, there ARE other designer labels out there that deserve our attention. Here are some of the latest designers that we have zeroed in on and fallen in love with.
The Aysha Collection is one of those fun and girly lines that stays true to what a spirited woman wants. Talented Aysha Saeed is well-versed in high-end design, having worked in Milan and Paris under big names like Dior, La Perla, and Dolce and Gabbana. Her latest dresses incorporate gorgeous colors that pop and are flattering on any figure. The Aysha Collection is featured in dozens of stores across the country in addition to multiple international locations and at ayshacollection.com.
As a luxury womenswear label, Christina Makowsky is working her way through the stars of Hollywood like a pro. Celebrities who have recently been seen wearing her dresses include Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul, Cheryl Burke, and Lisa Vanderpump. You've probably seen several of her pieces on X Factor this past season as well. Because Makowsky's designs all make use of fine fabrics, she is able to create the highest quality pieces possible for her clients.

Nonoo is a Yesyess! This designer's stuff is cutting edge and for every occasion. I'm completely in love with pretty much all of Nonoo's jackets, but this label is full of tops, dresses, pants...you name it. You may not have known it, but you've see their clothes on countless celebrities on the covers of magazines like Lucky, Vogue, 944, Elle, Bazaar, W, and many others.
Though Angelo Lambrou has an amazing bridal collection, he also has an eveningwear line that will have you digging up any excuse for a fabulous night out. Citing classic Valentino as his inspiration, he favors everything from red carpet entrance gowns to slinky little numbers. This eveningwear designer knows his lines and how to make a woman gasp over a garment and with awards season coming up, I'm sure Lambrou will be in full effect!
Having designed for several big name designers, you can see Cesar Galindo's aesthetic show through collections like Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. Fortunately, Galindo has branched out to form his own dream line, Czar. Combining soft and flowy silhouettes with sharp and edgy ones, this collection screams high-fashion. Describing his pieces as "social party outfits," Galindo captures his audiences with his signature architecturally draped silhouettes, his pops of color, and optical illusions.
