New York Fashion Week kicks off this week. So we sat down with Rebecca Minkoff -- the co-founder and creative director of, you guessed it, Rebecca Minkoff, LLC. That’s the fashion brand she started in 2005 with her brother. Since then, their company has been a leader in shaping the future of fashion: Rebecca Minkoff was one of the first fashion brands to engage with their customers through social media and influencers. But she hasn’t stopped there: in 2018, Rebecca launched the Female Founder Collective to support and invest in women-led businesses.
At this LIVE power breakfast, she talks to us about taking risks, going to couples therapy with her brother-slash-cofounder, and how women can support each other in the workplace.
By the way... we're trying something new: founders' book recs. This week we’re shouting out our friend -- and former guest on The Couch -- Reshma Saujani. She's got a new book called “Brave, Not Perfect” that's all about why girls should choose bravery. Get it here.*
