Women, who changed fashion world
Forbes magazine published a list of great people of the modern era.
This list includes Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Paul McCartney, Bono. And most importantly, among the great personalities of the business world, only a dozen women. Three of which are women who have changed the scope of fashion. Who are they?
Millions of women in the world who wear pulling underwear every day, do not even suspect who invented this element of the wardrobe. Sara Blakely, a girl who once trimmed tights to visually reduce her parameters in white trousers, did not even suspect that she would turn the fashion industry upside down.
“It all started with a pair of tights, scissors and a fresh idea” – this is how American Sara Blakely usually begins her story.
Then the girl saved 5 thousand dollars and opened her line of pulling underwear SPANX. Literally immediately about the products of Sara heard Oprah Winfrey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Jessica Alba. It’s easy to guess that after such advertisement SPANX sales immediately took off.
In 2012, Sara was on the cover of Forbes as the youngest self-made female millionaire. And its company SPANX owns 1.13 billion dollars now.
The second woman from the Forbes list is Diane von Furstenberg. In the 70’s, the girl invented a wrap dress and conquered the fashion industry.
“You have to believe in yourself,” – Diana says. – In order to start trusting yourself, you need to build the right relationship with yourself. And in order to do this, you need to be strict to yourself and not be deceived. “
“I managed to bring the American dream to life – I founded my own brand. After that, there were ups and downs, but thanks to my honesty and belief in myself, I managed to survive in the business world, ” – Diane von Furstenberg commented on her appearance in Forbes.
And the last woman from the Forbes list, which changed the world of fashion, is Miuccia Prada. Few people know that Miuccia worked as a mime in her youth for 5 years. And before she got her first collection, she worked as a store manager for 18 years. As a result, for so many years, Miucche managed to raise Prada to a whole new level, create a cult around brand and write bestsellers. Thanks to perseverance and diligence, the state of Miucci Prada today is 11.1 billion dollars.
