If you don’t know who Ralph Lauren is, then you’re not much of a fashionista. Born Ralph Liftshitz in the Bronx, Lauren is a world-famous clothing designer who entered the business in 1967 as the owner of a necktie store. He sold his own designs there under the name “Polo,” and thirty years later, Polo Ralph Lauren was a publicly traded company that took in over $5 billion in revenue according to SEC filings.
The designer and his wife of over 45 years had three children, Andrew, David and Dylan. Andrew is a producer of low-budget films and documentaries. David works at Polo Ralph Lauren as Senior Vice President of Advertising, Marketing and Corporate Communications. And daughter Dylan founded Dylan's Candy Bar, a chain of candy stores that she claims was inspired by seeing "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" at the age of five.
