Women Designing for Women: A Trend in Fashion We Hope Never Goes Out Of Style

By Nina Thomas

Fashion Journalist Jess Cartner-Morley has brought a quiet revolution to our attention: a male-dominated design world, with all the fanfare and flamboyance of reality TV, may be giving way to an understated and thoughtful female influence. She believes that here is something special about clothes designed by women for women.

“When women design clothes for women, they do it differently. For women, clothes are not just seen, they are felt from the inside. A female designer making women’s wear touches a fabric and knows how it will feel to wear it; she looks at a heel and knows how far she could walk in it.”

I know from my own experience that my perennial favorites—those good old pieces which are timeless and give me an overall sense of well-being–are often designed by a sister!

Jess writes so eloquently, I don’t dare to paraphrase. Read this and understand:
