gloria Vanderbilt on creating her own legacy

Gloria Vanderbilt lived with a long list of passions. She loved poetry, art, textiles, fashion and design and today we celebrate her life by celebrating one of her biggest successes - her own clothing collection.

Gloria Vanderbilt turned denim into designer and eventually a $200 million dollar brand. Her still enduring denim collection got its roots in the 70s and 80s. Her revolutionary approach to denim was luxury - a really well fit denim that would last. With their stretchy fabric and slim fit, Vanderbilt jeans became iconic to American wardrobes. Despite having not been involved in the company in over thirty years, Americans across the country celebrated the life of Gloria and her iconic business ventures.
