The seemingly endless parade of Fashion Weeks is finally over-at least this year. While designers are hard at work preparing new collections for 2016, Google has released its annual lists of "trending" topics-searches that saw a spike this year compared to 2014. And the list of top fashion designers might surprise you.
Raf Simons’ rise to the top may have been because of the news; he decided to leave his post as creative director at Christian Dior back in October. The rest is a combination of high-fashion stars and mass-market favorites, from Giambattista Valli to Tommy Hilfiger.
