Fashion Rule Breakers

Here Are The Fashion Designers, Brands, Models, And Icons We Admired Most In 2016

What fashion rules will you break in 2017?


Each month, A Plus profiles a fashion designer, model, organization, or icon who is a fashion rule breaker — someone who acts outside mainstream industry standards to make a positive difference. In 2016, we found a range of rule breakers we loved, but a few in particular stood out to us. Some of our favorites included Mindy Scheier who launched Runway of Dreams, a fashion line for differently abled children; Mariah Idrissi, the first model to wear a hijab in an ad for H&M; Ward + Robes, an initiative to design fashionable hospital gowns for sick teens; and Del Keens, who created Misfit Models, a modeling agency for people who are beautiful in unconventional ways.

Who were your favorite fashion rule breakers of 2016, and what fashion rules will you break next year?
