Allison Hart

Creative director of Destinations by Design; age 41.

Style icons: Patricia Field, Kate Moss, Simon Doonan, Alexander McQueen, Roger Thomas, and her mom, Jane Radoff.

What she’s wearing now: Coral and turquoise necklace (designed by her mom), Target tank top, All Saints beaded skirt, Chloé boots, Alexander McQueen skull ring and other miscellaneous rings and bracelets she has picked up during her travels.

Hart masterminds great events for a living, and says that comfort is never part of the equation when she gets dressed for work. “My brown suede thigh-high Louboutin boots are not a comfy option but more like an obsession! As the designer of a lot of the events I attend, I like to look like I knew what the party was going to look like without being too matchy-matchy to the décor.”

Illuminati Jewelry

South African-born jewelry designer Dean Stuart Aaron found his passion for design at a young age. “I was always making things—anything,” he says. So it wouldn’t come as a surprise that the son of a jewelry wholesaler would eventually end up in jewelry design. Aaron worked with his father after moving to Las Vegas in 2003, and this year released his collection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings constructed with bare metals and baroque design dubbed Illuminati.
