Meet Legendary Designer & Businesswoman – Rebecca Minkoff

BY Natalie Ellis

Meet the fabulous, powerful, passionate Rebecca Minkoff – fashion designer, entrepreneur, and industry leader. Rebecca is the visionary behind iconic luxury handbags, accessories, footwear, and apparel for strong, confident women. 

Talking about an unapologetically ambitious woman, Rebecca moved to New York City at age 18 to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer and became an overnight sensation after one of her t-shirt designs was featured on The Tonight Show. 

Rebecca has spent her career creating unforgettable pieces that have helped her become a pioneer in the fashion industry and technology space. She now has a global brand, 3 national retail stores, 8 international locations, and is in over 900 stores worldwide. She’s also the creator of the “Magic Mirror” technology, where customers interact with mirrors installed in the dressing room walls of her stores to pick out additional sizes, colors, and styles of clothing. So brilliant! 

Not only is Rebecca helping women dress for success and feel absolutely incredible in her designs, but she’s also helping women build their empires in business. Rebecca recently established the Female Founder Collective, which is a network of businesses led by women who invest in women’s financial power across a socioeconomic spectrum by enabling and empowering female-owned businesses.

How would you love to get Rebecca’s feedback on your business and how to take it to a whole new level? Yep, that’s an opportunity to get mentorship from a powerful businesswoman!
