Born In: Bronx, New York, United States
Ralph Lauren’s name has been bookmarked as one of the classiest names in the world of fashion. His famous brand, ‘Polo Ralph Lauren’ is currently a $10 billion dollar enterprise and continues to carve a niche in the market for casuals and semi-formal menswear and women wear. Apart from clothing and accessories, this suave entrepreneur and fashion designer is renowned for his rare collection of automobiles, some of which have been exhibited in museum displays. As a young boy, he was known to be one of the best-dressed teenagers who would splurge all his pocket money on buying luxurious suits. He then established ‘Polo Fashions’, the first of his ventures with a loan. He went on to carve a place for himself in the market and despite his successes, he continued to face strong competition from already established fashion houses like Armani. However, with his ambitious personality, he caught hold of the upcoming fashion market by diverging out into women’s clothing, furniture, sheets and towels. He soon established his enterprise as a public company and from then on, the fashion house’s name has only been soaring. In addition to his successful business enterprise, he is an avid supporter of philanthropic activities and has founded the charitable organizations, ‘Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention’ and ‘Pink Pony Fund’.
