When I applied to go to fashion school five years ago, everyone told me to get out. That there was no money in the industry and that I should get into a career that was more reliable. Well, I know that money can’t buy happiness and that there are also no guarantees that I’ll be a billionaire any time soon, but here’s a list of the 10 richest people in the fashion industry according to Forbes to inspire all of us in this industry, that there’s hope for us yet!
