Shokra: Shokra has been killing the game this past year, from dressing Alyssa Edwards and Derrick Barry, to doing the Halloween costumes for Katy Perry and Ellen Degeneres. Shokra is going to be a tough competitor to beat this year.
Walter Mendez: This year Walter Mendez has expanded his brand reaching the east coast. His elegant aesthetic has been a must-have for high profile stars from the beginning. Will his fashion week gold be enough to take the WERRRK.com gold?
Dallas Coulter: There is a 99.9% that you have been witness to the amazing designs of Dallas Coulter at some point. She has been dressing all of your favorite drag stars and has never disappointed. One of her recent projects was of course the outfits for Detox’s and Alaska’s RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 2 Promo.
GROOM: GROOM is a rather new label with a specialty in men’s wedding wear. The look is very polished, clean, yet makes a statement. Octavius Terry has been leading this brand in the right direction and will only grow stronger.
Planet Pepper: Created by Broadway costume designer Alex Bartlett and his Vincent Cuccia, Planet Pepper remains on of the premier drag fashion designers in the country, counting the legendary Lady Bunny and members of the Imperial Court among their clients. They continue to innovate as they recently added the amazing Astrobooty to their product line, an all in one hip pad combo to help give queens a curvier silhouette.
