Forbes decided to cut "Design" from the "Art & Design" category of their "30 under 30" list and add "Style" to it, ushering in a slew of names very familiar to these pages. Among them are Carly Cushnie, the first half of Cushnie et Ochs (learn how to pronounce the name here) and three online entrepreneurs, Sophia Amoruso of Nasty Gal and the dynamic duo behind Modcloth. Of course designers like the Olsens, Alexander Wang, and Joseph Altuzarra make the list, as does blogging superstar Leandra Medine. Also, Carine Roitfeld's son Vladimir secured a spot but for his artistic ventures rather than style. Check out all 30 under 30 after the jump.
