In the late 80s, fashion icon Ralph Lauren wore a black leather jacket and fedora and wore jeans and a white t-shirt to his first fashion show in New York City.
He had been a frequent fixture at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New Jersey, where he studied fashion design and worked as a fashion photographer.
His first show in Los Angeles was in 1991 and lasted for a full day.
His second show in 1997 in the Hollywood Bowl drew record crowds.
In 2000, he opened his second show on the Lower East Side, in a former movie theater, and sold out in minutes.
The shows were attended by a huge crowd, and he drew rave reviews.
It was the first time that he wore his trademark black jacket, which was red and white striped, and a fedora.
“It was the most surreal moment of my life,” he told The Associated Press in 2016.
“I had to do this again.
This time it was the right thing to do.”
In 1999, he returned to Los Angeles, this time as part of the iconic LA punk band The Stooges.
His new label, Roc Nation, launched, and by 2001, it had the largest catalog of pop culture products in the world.
By the time he left the label in 2003, he was the undisputed king of the 90s, selling over 1 billion records and generating more than $1 billion in revenue, according to Forbes.
In the 1990s, Ralph Lauren became a cult figure for his iconic black jacket.
He had the highest sales of any fashion icon in history at the time, according in a 2014 article for Vanity Fair.
He is considered a “cultural icon,” and he became a fixture at a time when America was feeling its way through the recession and the dot-com bubble.
In the 1990, he had his own clothing line called Ralph Lauren’s Vintage, and it sold out its first day of sales.
It eventually sold over a million copies.
He was also one of the first to break into pop culture, appearing on TV shows like “The Cosby Show” and “Dancing with the Stars,” and having his own television show, “Ralph Lauren: The Real Life.”
He became the face of a new generation of celebrities, including Usher, Britney Spears, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, among others.
The 70s were an era of high fashion, and many of the fashion designers in the 90’s, including Ralph Lauren, went to work for fashion houses like Louis Vuitton and H&M, which had a large presence in the industry.
Ralph Lauren made his name at the beginning of the decade with his line of leather jackets, which were made in Italy and featured pockets and rivets.
He later introduced his iconic red-and-white striped suit.
His clothing line was based in New Orleans, where the town was a cultural hub for fashion.
Ralph was a fixture in the music scene in the mid-90s, and in the early 2000s, he became the first artist to break through into the mainstream.
Ralph was the face behind the iconic black suit, and the first designer to ever sell a million dollars worth of clothing in one day, according Vanity Fair in 2014.
His company sold a million pieces in one week in 1993.
After his career was over, he continued to design clothes, with his label, R.J. Reynolds.
He would go on to create many of his signature accessories, including a pair of sunglasses that he co-designed with Michael Kors.
