I think the most interesting story is that of Estée Lauder. Her story is one of perseverance and determination.

I have read the story of Coco Chanel s interesting and she certainly has endured I had not heard of Madam C. J. Walker, as referred to by Mary J, but she sounds like she should be admired.

The only 2 that I can think of that really changed fashion were Coco Chanel and Diane von Furstenberg. I like their designs and their perfumes.

I am not a fashion expert so I have no idea who changed the fashion world. I do know that I like wearing my Diane von Furstenberg dress.
