Fashion Designers : The Five Most Popular Of 2011 - By: Callum Leslie Walters

Fashion is something that impacts on all our lives, but very few people actually know that much about the top designers who influence the trends that we follow. This is why we've put together this guide to look at some of the most famous fashion designers of 2011 and their key achievements. One really popular designer right now is Issa. Based in London, Camilla al Fayed has just bought a controlling stake in this designer, who is increasingly popular thanks to her royal fan, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Now we come to another 'Royal connection' and Alexander McQueen. He may have sadly passed away in 2010 but the designer's fashion house is still going strong, with Sarah Burton - the creative director of Alexander McQueen - designing Kate Middleton's wedding dress in 2011. That move catapulted an already popular designer into the limelight. Alexander McQueen is known for memorable prints and patterns as well as statement pieces that get heads turning. The designs also feature a blend of modernity and classic style for a timeless look.

In 2011, Donatella Versace is also more popular than ever. The house of Versace is never that far away from the limelight and the brand has long been one of the most recognizable in the world. Their current collection includes some sensational evening wear. It also involves lovely clean tailoring and bright summery colors. Also, Donatella Versace has recently been announced as designing clothes for high street label H&M, making the brand more relevant than ever and those clothes are sure to sell out fast.

Newer designers are also set to be huge throughout 2011 and one of those new designers is Dion Lee. He is an Australian designer and is only 24 years old, which is very impressive when you consider what a stir his most recent shows have been making in the fashion world. Considered to be one of the best designers to come out of Australia for a long time, it seems safe to say he's going to continue on to bigger and more amazing things as time passes.

We can also expect to see more from Spanish-born designer Emilio de la Morena. He now works a lot in London but his Spanish influences are more than clear in his designs, which are often very ornate and exciting. His clothes often appear to be moving sculptures and he describes the type of woman to wear his clothes as 'strong and modern'. This is certainly something that is evident in the clothes he designs and it will be interesting to see what he does next.
