The Most Popular Fashion Designers in History
The most popular fashion designers of all time are names familiar even to those who are not fashionistas. Coco Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan, Christian Dior are just some of the design icons whose fame has transcended the fashion world.
They have become popular because they’ve succeeded in identifying trends, taken risks, defied convention, turned their name into an enduring brand, hobnobbed with the rich and famous, and demonstrated media and social media savvy.
With New York Fashion Week scheduled to start on Feb. 8, 24/7 Wall St. is taking this opportunity to compile a list of the most popular fashion designers in history.
