Happy International Women's Day, y'all! To celebrate, our sister site has come up with a list of the six most influential women designers who changed fashion. There may not be any surprises, but the roster is notable for how delightfully diverse in the brands of fashion each woman has delivered. One thing they all have in common is a desire to give women freedom, power and beauty. They banished the corset, introduced the sexy/comfy wrap dress, gave us lustworthy wedding dresses, and much more. [Racked]
