If you’ve been struggling to find the perfect holiday gift for your fashionable friend who is always ahead of the trends, tracks all the buzzy red carpet designers, and follows the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund each year to scout the next big designer to watch, why not ask the people who know best?
Yahoo Lifestyle asked 13 top fashion industry insiders to share one “high-priced” and one “low-priced” gift they are each coveting this year. Great gifts don’t have to cost a fortune, but that doesn’t mean everyone can’t still dream of one splurge-worthy vacation, furniture item, or piece of jewelry.
If the one you’re shopping for this year is classy and elegant, just like Jason Wu’s gorgeous gown designs, his gift picks might be worth a look. But if your friend is anything like the socially conscious Aurora James, behind Brother Vellies, the shoe brand that is improving the lives of Africans by creating jobs in South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Morocco, then James’s wish list might be something to consider too.
If your lucky gift recipient is similar to the ultracool duo behind Monse and Oscar de la Renta, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia — known for their high-fashion editorial off-the-shoulder dresses for Monse and show-stopping gowns for de la Renta — then their wish list is one to bookmark.
Ahead, see what these designers, as well as 10 other fashion insiders, including Christian Siriano, Harley Viera-Newton, Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, Jonathan Simkhai, and others are all coveting this holiday season.
Afterward, head to Polyvore for a chance to win one of 10 $250 Visa gift cards from their #PolyPresents: Wish List contest (open now until Dec. 31) and treat yourself this holiday season.
