I’m literally sitting here yawning as I prepare to host a fashion show in New York. Y’all pray for me, mmmmk?
At any rate, I wanted to drop in quickly to let you know that the richest man in the world is Bernard Arnault, the CEO of LVMH, the home to brands like Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, and Christian Dior.
Instead of opine on the importance of us supporting emerging brands vs. continue to line the pockets of a billionaire who is richer than Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos, I am instead writing to let you know that anything is possible in the world of fashion.
Fashion is seen to be frivolous, silly, and superficial, and in some ways it is all that. But it can also be extremely lucrative.
Don’t ever think you ‘can’t make a living,’ in fashion. It’s just a matter of figuring out how.
Another interesting note, the women in fashion who are on the Billionaire list include the co-founder of the GAP, the owner of Forever 21, the creator of Spanx, and Tory Burch. Take notes from those who have done it well, and try to do it just as good as them–or even better.
The more you know.
Love & Light,
