American fashion designer Cynthia Rowley has one of the coolest stories on her beginnings in the fashion world. Rowley launched her business in 1981 with $3,000 in seed money from one of her grandmothers. Several months later, she held a fashion show in her apartment, inviting every important fashion editor in New York, as well as Andy Warhol and a smattering of movie stars – none of whom she knew and none of whom attended. 🙂
Today she sells more than $300 million worth of branded products a year. And to celebrated the opening of her newest venture, a candy shop, Cynthia Rowley created the Curious Candy Film. Have a look at her sweet and sour world.
