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.

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. 2016 Drag Awards: Designer of the Year 14

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.
