Quote of the Day: Ralph Lauren

As 2017 begins to wane away, I was thinking about some of the fun experiences I had this past year. I vividly remember seeing Ralph Lauren in person, giving a speech during Terry Lundgren’s (i.e. Macy’s longtime former CEO) retirement party earlier this year. I was so geeked out by his presence and genuinely felt inspired by Ralph Lauren’s ability to maintain longevity in the retail business. I spotted this quote from Ralph Lauren and felt compelled to share with you. Hopefully this quote will inspire some of you to set your own trends in 2018!

I’m sure many of you now who Ralph Lauren is, but for those who don’t, Ralph Lauren is an iconic American designer known best for his multi-billion dollar eponymous fashion brand that covers apparel, accessories, footwear, fragrances, and home product categories. Lauren is a native New Yorker and began his career in fashion working as a sales associate for Brooks Brothers. In the late 1960s, Lauren ventured out to establish his own line of men's neckties that were sold in Bloomingdale’s among other luxury retailers.  In 1972, Lauren designed the “Polo” shirt, which remains to be one of  American fashion’s most iconic clothing item. In addition to working in fashion, Lauren also has ventures in dining, film, and philanthropy. In 2015, Lauren stepped down from his position as CEO.
