There’s been no shortage of fresh trends, designers and even Fashion Month curveballs in 2016, but a new group has been shaking things up: blogger-designers. Whether they’re partnering with big brands, collaborating on capsules or launching their own collections, these fashion mavens (most of them are far more than just bloggers at this point) are creating products for their legions of followers, and retailers are snapping them up. Here, a recap of some of our favorites from the blogosphere this year.

MR by Man Repeller
Leandra Medine of Man Repeller has built an industry-wide presence on her affinity for finding eccentric pieces. Her debut collection of MR by Man Repeller features head-turning styles like velvet sandals, high-gloss loafers and metallic boots.
Damsel in Dior x Adina Reyter
Jacey Duprie of Damsel in Dior collaborated on a holiday line with jewelry designer Adina Reyter. The result is an array of dainty layering pieces you (and any lucky individual on your gift list) will wear every day.
Second Skin Overalls by Danielle Bernstein
With the tagline of Danielle Bernstein's blog We Wore What being "Overalls are my second skin", it makes total sense that her first foray into the design world consists of denim jumpsuits. The 5-style range offers everything from skin-tight flight suits to slouchy culotte silhouettes in a range of washes.
Chiara Ferragni The Blonde Salad
Building on the success of her namesake shoe line, Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad has expanded her ecommerce to include exclusive collaborations with cult brands like MSGM and No. 21, bringing her unique signature style to the masses.
Tina Craig for Gianfranco Lotti
Tina Craig started her blog Bag Snob in 2005 and has amassed a dedicated luxury-focused following over the past 11 years. Her debut line of bags in collaboration with Gianfranco Lotti aims to cater to their high-end tastes and is available exclusively on Net-a-Porter.com.
