    Usage of women designers

    All the women designers have their shops in George Street.

    Does women designers mean designers who are women or designers who design for women? Can I say woman designers?

    Re: Usage of women designers

    Women designers are female designers, and they can be designing anything. From context it is likely to be clothes, and there is more than one, so it has to be plural.

    Re: Usage of women designers

    Thanks a lot, Anglika!

    Can you please tell me if the following phrases are fine?

    designers for women (those who design for women)
    photographers of women (those who photograph women)
