When Ji Oh debuted her eponymous womenwear line at New York Fashion Week in 2014, her fall collection landed on the cover of WWD the following day and Barneys New York placed an order. “It was very memorable and rewarding,” she says. “And I felt like, ‘Okay, now I can do this.'” Oh’s checklist of achievements as a young designer on the rise only continued, and 2016 has proven to be a breakout year.

Donatella Versace has been at the helm of the brand for almost two decades now and has definitely made the iconic Italian fashion house synonymous with power, sensuality, and strength: yes, the kinds of pieces you would wear for a night out but for the love of your own body and not that of the male gaze.
