Much like the fashion industry itself, the search trends for top designers is also ever-evolving. Search engine Bing has released its list of the top most searched fashion designers of 2014, and Michael Kors has reclaimed its top spot after falling to second place last year. Rounding out the top five are other big names including Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, and Gucci.
Oddly, the most searched designer of 2013 was Victoria Beckham, who didn’t even make the list this year. The rest of the top ten included Chanel and Kate Spade, who were included on the 2013 roundup, and Versace, Burberry, and BCBG Max Azria who were not.
Kors is known for designing classic American sportswear for women, and has a particularly successful collection of handbags and timepieces under his eponymous label. It's been a big year for the designer who launched a shoppable Instagram account and expanded his successful fashion brand into tech accessories. He’s also been called the Jay Z to Anna Wintour’s Beyoncé, which has to do wonders for anyone’s reputation.
