Some of the biggest global designer brands

There are some brands that are just head and shoulders above the rest. Similar to a sports car or expensive jewelry, some brands are deemed as ‘luxury designer’ and command a higher price tag. Clothing also falls into this category but is a term that is often overused and misapplied. Something should only be deemed designer if it represents supreme craftsmanship, sophisticated styling, and the finest materials. Here are some examples of the most popular designer brands on the high street today:
