Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060958480, Paperback)
There are at least two Ralph Laurens.
To the public he's a gentle, modest, yet secure and purposeful man. Inside the walls of Polo Ralph Lauren, though, he's seen by some as a narcissist, an insecure ditherer, and, at times, a rampaging tyrant.
Michael Gross, author of the bestseller Model, lays bare the truths of this fashion emperor's rise, and reveals not only the secrets of his stunning success in marketing our shared fantasies but also a darker side that's hidden behind the chic patrician façade.
(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:21:52 -0400)
Traces the origins and rise of the self-made fashion tycoon, describing his disadvantaged Bronx childhood, his early tie designs, the secrets of his success, and the scandals that marked his career and private life.
