High school theater geeks, take note: Rebecca Minkoff got her start designing costumes for her high school plays. Today she is the founder of a global brand selling handbags, footwear, jewelry, apparel and accessories. Rebecca has been recognized with the Breakthrough Designer Award from the Accessories Council and charter membership in the New York State Council on Women and Girls. And her company generated over $100 million in sales in 2017.
The success of her brand has provided Rebecca with an incredible platform, and she has used it to offer support and inspiration to other women. Her Superwomen podcast gives listeners the opportunity to hear the unvarnished stories of women’s lives, their successes and failures, and their advice to their sisters everywhere.
As Rebecca told Forbes recently, “There is an ongoing cycle for everything you do in life: Grow. Learn. Fail. Every time you grow it repeats itself…You develop confidence and grit from knowing that you can fall, get back up, and start over again.”
