A search of “World’s most famous clothing designers” brought a page of such wealth.  It was interesting to see how many angles were covered in just a few possibilities of further reading.

Elle – “From the most influential to the newest, find out how your favorite fashion designers broke into the fashion industry and what inspires each collection.”  Or while you are there, check out the latest collections.

The Richest says of the ten richest fashion designers, “Whatever style comes to their mind, they draw it, and the world will follow. These are the real trendsetters. They are the ones whose creativity would lead to the latest fashion trends to be worn by socialites, celebrities and models. We admire the supermodels ramping up and down the runway, but the real stars of the show are the clothes and the people behind its design.”  The Richest puts their focus on The Top Ten (Richest) Fashion Designers in the World.  See, everyone needs and benefits from focus!

Have you noticed how people love numbers?  It is worth noticing – especially if you are trying to get on a fast track (or even a slow track) to riches.

New Editing and Media Updates Are Here

WordPress Lovers: another wonderful free update!!

Originally posted on WordPress.com News:

As many of you know, we periodically release new features and updates to the software that powers WordPress.com sites. We’re excited to share the freshest crop of improvements with you today, and hope they’ll make great content even easier to create.

Some of the highlights of this major update:

  • The Media Library’s look has been upgraded, and your files are now displayed, by default, in an easy-to-view grid. Still prefer the old list view? You can toggle back and forth as many times as you wish.
  • Composing new posts — and editing old ones — has just become a lot easier with a fixed toolbar. You no longer need to scroll up and down the Post Editor to make changes, which makes longform writing, in particular, especially smoother.
  • Improved audio playlists let you enter artist and album information, which will be displayed in the audio player in the published post.

A sleeker…
