The line is the first celebrity brand to pull in about $1 billion in annual sales since 2010. The celebrity fashion brand is now 14 years old and boasts thirty different products in various major American department stores. 



The model has had numerous collaborations with successful designers and was even awarded the British Style Award by the British Fashion Council. She launched her label, Alexachung, in 2016 and added some of her elegant vintage styles to the fabulous outfits which are popular among fans. The designer joined the London Fashion Week schedule after a few individual shows and now sits with A-list fashion designers.

Inamorata Swim By Emily Ratajkowski


The model has been giving various bikini looks on social media over the years and finally decided to launch a swimsuit line called Inamorata. The brand was launched in 2017 and includes a collection of eye-catching one-piece to two-piece swimsuits which accentuates the model's creative design skills. Ratajkowski is also the main model for her line and dishes out itty-bitty bikini snaps on Instagram, rocking bikini outfits to their fullest.

The Row


Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen launched their fashion brand, The Row, in 2006. The luxury brand has a collection of classic designs which has been worn by a lot of top-notch Hollywood stars and even shown at the New York Fashion Week.

The twins won their first Womenswear Designer of the Year Award in 2012 at CFDAs and another in 2015 and 2018. A year after launching their first fashion line, they launched Elizabeth and James which was named after their younger siblings. The line deals in dresses, sweaters, pants, and tops and transcends casual outfits into top-notch modern pieces. 

Day Won By Candice Huffine


Candice Huffine has made a name for herself in the fashion world as a plus-size model. To inspire others to embrace body positivity, she decided to launch Day Won in 2017 which is a size-inclusive activewear brand. The line deals in leggings, biker shorts in various sizes ranging from XS to 5X, and T-shirts.

The line is an extension of the initiative to encourage women to celebrate their bodies and shows that on the website, "all bodies are good bodies, and all women CAN!". Huffine has previously helped with Women's Running magazine called Project Start and decided to start the brand partially out of her celebration as a runner.
