I don’t design clothes. I design dreams.” —Ralph Lauren

Gucci and Versace is top notch but they are not World’s richest fashion brand. It’s amazing to see how much fashion has changed in the space of a few hundred years and we owe a debt of gratitude to these 10 companies and millions of others who has contributed immensely to the evolution of fashion.

According to Kenzo Takada ” Fashion is like eating, you shouldn’t stick to the same menu” These underlisted companies are so good in setting trends, always adding new designs on the menu.

Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.” —Vivienne Westwood
