For accessories, you favored Irene Neuwirth (about 59%), followed by Tabitha Simmons (22%) and Pamela Love (19%) in a close run-off.

Next up is a challenge featuring the nominees for the Womenswear Designer of the Year Award, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen of The Row, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs.
