From a simple pair of $200 ballet flats, Burch has built a fashion empire valued at upwards of $3 billion. From one boutique in Manhattan, her designs are now sold worldwide and include athletic wear, cosmetics, and watches.

The Future of Fashion
Celebrity endorsements can bring attention and sales to a designer’s products. Designers have used pop stars like Rihanna to promote everything from sneakers to perfume.
Luxury retailers like Nordstrom’s also offer discountrue coupons to shoppers as an incentive to purchase products or just visit the store. Most designers have websites that offer online specials as well as coupons to use in the store.
Although legacy brands like Gucci and Prada will probably continue to be dominant in retail fashion, a number of upstart designers are vying for a place at the table. The age of the internet is also bringing new competition in the way consumers buy clothing. Only time will tell what direction the fashion will take.
