2. Jessica Faulkner

A self-described tomboy-meets-debutante, fashion designer Jessica Faulkner has an eye for detail that elevates her eponymous contemporary collection of tailored pieces for a woman who is bold, powerful and can go head to head with the boys. A Southern California native and former snowboarding competitor, Faulkner embodies a loose elegance and comfort in her own skin. Like her, the Los Angeles designed and made label is striking and feminine with the edge of a woman that takes life by the horns.

Jessica Faulkner creates timeless pieces that are versatile, polished and made in the U.S.A. Now in her fifth season, Jessica Faulkner evolves with each collection by creatively using eye-catching prints, pristine, quality fabrics and flattering shapes designed to make women feel their best every single day.

3. Espalier

Espalier weaves sleek, seductive, silhouettes with subtle yet powerful details in an alluring, active-lifestyle apparel brand. 

Designer Karen Hsieh transformed her appreciation of lingerie into a line with no limitations on when and where it might be worn. She took inspiration from feminine details, and–perhaps more importantly–the sense of empowerment many women have expressed when wearing especially sensual or beautiful lingerie. These articles, she noticed, often serve as a link between a private ritual and the outward confidence a woman shows to the world. Designed to withstand the rigors of fitness, but also work as everyday statement pieces, Espalier apparel embraces ease in movement and sensual freedom of expression.

From office, to yoga, to dinner, Espalier provides comfort and a touch of provocative style no matter what activities unfold.
