10 Lady Designers To Shop NOW

Don’t get us wrong, we love a talented man. Marc, Karl, Tom, Ralph, they're doing the darn thing. But, let's be honest, this biz needs ladies as much as a Chanel 2.55 needs quilted leather. Read: Donatella, Stella, Miuccia, and co. are utterly essential. And, it's not just Eurocentric legends bringing estrogen to the game. This batch of NYC-based designers is crushing it right this very second, too. After perusing their collections, we've had to add a second sixth page to our shopping lists.
Prepare yourself for outlandish prints from a seasoned traveler, closet mainstays re-invented by a former creative director, and pretty separates courtesy of an ex-Barneys buyer. By the sounds of it, spring 2014 may just be the best season, ever — all thanks to the 10 luminaries after the jump. It's just like Bey said: Girls run the world.
