So, have a look below to our top five women authors lending their names to our five favorite new creations.
1. Elena Ferrante ^ Ferrante Dress

Born around 1943-45 in Naples, Italy, the author under this pseudonym hasn't revealed it's identity besides the numerous speculations and claims that have been heard around the years.
Author of many novels and volumes with the exceptional four-volume work known as Neapolitan Novels, about two perceptive and intelligent girls from Naples who try to create lives for themselves within a violent and regressive culture. The series consists of My Brilliant Friend (2012), The Story of a New Name (2013), Those Who Leave And Those Who Stay (2014), and The Story of the Lost Child (2015).
