The fashion world and the word 'billionaire,' have been synonymous ever since the announcement of Tory Burch’s increased wealth earlier this year. Forbes has just released its annual billionaires list, and it seems as if she’s not the only fashion mogul on there.
20 different fashion moguls are featured on the list, which all-together hosts 1,426 names. Not a huge percentage, but enough to make a statement.
Here are the richest billionaires in fashion (numbered by their ranking within Forbes’ overall):
