Sometimes people do not understand or appreciate the importance of brilliant business in fashion industry. Just because you can make great clothes every season does not necessarily mean you’ll gain a ton of loyal following, especially when you’re a big fashion company like Burberry.
When Sartorialist posts a link to WSJ’s interview with Angela Ahrendts, the Burberry CEO, I just had to read it. This is someone with grace, poise, and humility, leading a 2 billion company, constantly striving to bring wider appeal to customers, enforce brand loyalty, and keep the numbers up during the downturn. A truly inspiring articles for fashionistas and non-fashionistas alike, and I highly recommend it.
