This Peruvian evening-wear designer opened her first brick-and-mortar store at just 20 years old, to house her fancy dresses ($140–$1,400) alongside women’s threads from other up-and-coming talents. For a special occasion, try on Pamela Gonzales silk-chiffon-and-tulle gowns embellished with Swarovski crystals ($968) or one-strap silk-chiffon dresses ($1,365). The designer also has more-classic options, such as silk-taffeta frocks ($895) and knit dresses with cotton turtlenecks ($775). More-affordable picks include Sandra Baquero long-sleeved peplum dresses ($285), Mel en Stel asymmetrical turtlenecks ($245) and Jess Rizzuti top-handle bags ($596).
