Oprah Interviews Ralph Lauren
Oprah conducted the first televised interview with Ralph Lauren in 20 years. Yep, O chopped it up with the man born Ralph Lifshitz (in the Bronx!), creator of the ultimate lifestyle brand that bears his name and whose wears and apparel have been co-opted and flipped by a legion of freshly dipped Hip-Hop heads. A fave quote from the interview, posted at Oprah.com:
“I didn’t have a vision as in, This is where I’m going. I had a vision as in, ‘This is what I love to do.’ The ties, as simple as they were, looked very different from other ties. They were wide and unusual. I never said to myself, ‘I’m going to be the greatest.’ I just wanted to do my own thing. I’d worked for a tie company, and I said, ‘Can we do this kind of tie? I think we could sell them in New York.’ This older guy who ran the company said, ‘No—the world is not ready for Ralph Lauren.‘”
Aspiration leads to inspiration. Right DP?
