Summary
"Ralph Lauren is the first designer in the history of fashion to create clothes so archetypal of their time and place that they have almost come to symbolise a nation. Largely ignoring the vagaries of fashion change, he has taken the best of the past and recast it for the present and in so doing has given international cachet to the weft and warp of American life; its history, geography and culture." "Colin McDowell not only tells the life story of Ralph Lauren - his beginnings as a tie salesman to the opening of his first store in New York and then the making of his empire - but he examines the roots of Lauren's Americana and what has inspired him - whether it be Hollywood in the days of Grace Kelly and Gary Cooper, cowboys, or yachting and the America's cup."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
Profiles the life of the fashion design magnate, from his Bronx childhood to his rise to prominence in the field of fashion, and looks at the impact his innovations have had on clothing styles, interior design, and culture as a whole
