that Marc Jacobs is a devoted dog owner and even named a perfume after his dog Daisy, which was named after Daisy Buchannan from “The Great Gatsby.”

that when Michael Kors ran his own boutique at 11-years-old in his basement, it was called Iron Butterfly Boutique and he sold homemade candles and leather pouches.

that the Guinness World Records named Gucci’s distressed, ripped and African bead-embellished ‘Genius Jeans’, as the most expensive jeans in the world. They debuted October 1998 in Milan for $3,134.

that Gabriella ‘Coco’ Chanel created her first perfume Chanel No 5 in 1921, and it was the first fragrance to bear the name of a designer.
