Liz Claiborne

Liz Claiborne was a Belgian-born American fashion designer and entrepreneur. Claiborne is best known for founding Liz Claiborne Inc. which in 1986 became the first company founded by a woman to make the Fortune 500.  Claiborne was the first woman to become chairperson and CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Claiborne, frustrated at the failure of the companies that she worked for to provide clothes for working women, started her own design company, Liz Claiborne Inc., in 1976.  It was an immediate success with sales of $2 million in 1976 and $23 million in 1978.  By 1988 it had acquired one-third of the American women’s upscale sportswear market.
