As what Arianna is saying in the book are no news, however, that she says it makes it more powerful and it's a much needed book.

As someone who has worked in fashion, albeit "just as" an eCommerce Manager, I find the fashion world enticingly interesting. One of the reasons are that the fashion industry is filled with passionate people who follow both their dreams and visions and work immensely hard to achieve them and make them reality.
