Ralph Lauren was born Ralph Lifshitz, on October 14, 1939 in the Bronx, NY. He studied at the City College of New York and served in the United States Army from 1962-1964.
Ralph Lauren was the first to sell "lifestyle." It was not just a dress or a blazer or a pair of pants. It was the whole look! When Ralph Lauren designs a collection, he thinks of every thing that goes with it.
Hence today, we have Ralph Lauren clothes, Ralph Lauren Home, Ralph Lauren scents & perfumes, even Ralph Lauren paint!
Ralph Lauren is the designer of our lives!
