Ralph Lauren’s real name is Ralph Lifshitz. He is an American fashion designer, whose net worth is $5.5 billion.
Ralph Lauren was not born into privilege. He was born in the Bronx, New York City, to Jewish immigrants.
At the age of 12, he worked after school to fund his extravagant taste in clothing and was known for selling hand-made ties to his fellow students at school – little did he know this would become the driving force of his entrepreneurial success.
It had taken him two decades to progress from his first low paid job as a glove salesman to multi-millionaire status.
