Most powerful at the moment.

Sunday, 11 March 2007

There are people in the fashion industry that just follow the lead and then there are the industry people who define and rule the industry. At present time there are three invisible rings in the fashion world which are on the hands of the most influential individuals in the industry.
Listed below are the fashion gurus who can take you every corner on the fashion world. They are fashion royalty and get to sit on the front row on every fashion show they attend. When you catch them on the streets, you should be able to recognize them.

Arnhult Bernard

Bernard is not a designer, a stylist and neither is he an editor. To be more specific he does have any direct influence in the world of fashion but we all know that money is power and his wallet is as deep as a black hole. With a net worth exceeding 26 billion dollars he is the 7th wealthiest man in the world. He had made money rain into his account by building up an impressive portfolio of luxury companies and his title is CEO of LVMH.
The abbreviation stands for Loius Vuitton Möet Hennesy and is a concern consisting of 60 companies, which includes; TAG Heuer, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Donna Karan. As if the CEO title isn’t big enough he owns a staggering 51% of LVMH. Now that is what I call power.

Marc Jacobs

After getting fired in 1993 from his post as a designer Perry Ellis for creating an unconventional collection Marc Jacobs gained some fame. Since God closes doors and open windows Marc’s unwanted collection for Perry Ellis led a few years later to employment at LV, where he in 1997 was appointed creative director at the fashion giant.
Marc’s new post marked the start of his sky rocketing career. He designed LV accessories with pastel colours.
Further more Marc also brought in another designer to create LV with graffiti and they became an instant hit.
Thanks to all the success at LV he got to start his own brand, while still working at LV. What he is known for is elegant and stylish designs, which usually follows no trends at all. As a designer with super star status, Marc will definitely remain in the spot light for years to come.

Anna Wintour

If you are familiar with Vogue Magazine, then you have seen the work of Anna Wintour. She is the editor in chief of Vogue US, which is the worlds biggest fashion magazine. She decides what should and shouldn’t be in the vogue magazines around the world.
Her bob haircut in combination with sunglasses gives her a true monotonic Zoolander look. Don’t laugh at her though because with her power she can make or break your career in the world of fashion. She always walks around with an entourage of people, including someone which holds her purse for her. Anna is so powerful that some fashion shows are held up until she arrives. If you watch television and movies a lot you might have seen her portrayed as Fey Sommers in Ugly betty and as Miranda Priestly in “The Devil Wears Prada.”
