1998 Best Women's Clothing, Cashmere Sweater

Alan Bilzerian

With cashmere making an impressive showing on big-name designer runways this year, the once-snooty yarn has shaken its stuffy twin-set-and-pearls image. Alan and Be Bilzerian have been addicted to designing and manufacturing cashmere sweaters since Be found out she was allergic to wool. Alas, while cashmere has broken free from the land of country clubs and debutantes, the prices still require a trust fund or two.
