CAIRO - 14 October 2017: “It's the kind of clothes that mothers and daughters can wear, in terms of concept... It's not about age. It's about taste, and it's about lifestyle. I believe women of all ages can wear anything." - Ralph Lauren

One of the classiest names in the world of fashion is Ralph Lauren. Born on October 14 1939, Lauren was born under name Ralph Lifshitz.

As a result of childish bullying, the infamous designer changed his name to Ralph Lauren at the age of 16, not knowing that it would later become a brand. He studied business at Baruch College but dropped out two years later.

In 1966 he wanted to create his own version of European-styled neckties, but the company he was working for rejected his project. However, he was persistent and in 1967, he took a $50,000 loan from a clothing manufacturer to open a necktie store under the label Polo.

He opened a Polo boutique on Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, in 1971. A year later he released his trademark logo. According to the Famous People website, in 2007, Ralph Lauren had established over 35 boutiques in 23 locations, around the United States.”

Fun facts:

● Lauren grew up playing basketball and baseball.
● He wanted to be a movie star.
● He served in the American army from 1962 to 1964.

Another quote for the road:
"I don't think women should look like costumes. I don't think they should look like fashion victims. I think these (clothes) are for women that want to look sexy. They want to look smart."
