House of Dereon

Those Kardashians are hell bent on taking over the industry. While we all try to figure out what exactly Kim K. does, you can't deny her knack for fashion. The stylist-turned-reality juggernaut established her DASH boutique in LA and has since expanded to several major cities. Together with Kourtney and Khloe, the trifecta recently launched the Kardashian Kollection at Sear's. The line's simple designs with carefully placed embellishments are a hit among other affordable fashion lines.

Soon after that, she expanded her clientele to countless celebs including FLOTUS Michelle Obama and Tyra Banks. Her most recent collection for Macy's is a must-have for the holiday season.
Reese is somewhat of a legend among black fashion designers. Her ready-to-wear and formal designs are synonymous with elegance. The who's who of celebrity Vixens rock her looks and can be found at retailers including Nordstrom's, Bloomingdale's and Neiman Marcus.
