  1. We'd always assumed Ralph Lauren's path to red-soled success was a smooth one. But, speaking at the Fashion Institute of Technology's annual commencement last week, he revealed it was in fact studded with the same difficulties that many face. At ralph lauren outlet one point he even stepped away from designing shoes to try and carve out a career in landscape gardening as he was so fed up (his partner Louis Benech is also a landscape gardener).

    "If you ask me if I felt stupid wasting time gardening, I would say absolutely not. You need a lot of patience for a gardener; I wouldn't give up one second of my gardening experience," he told the congregation of graduating student, recounted by polo outlet. You are at a wonderful age where you can still chance your path. Don't decide, when you start something, that this is it. You can still decide and change things around.

    Other pearls of wisdom offered by the designer included his belief that you should disregard "preconceived ideas, like never sleep where you work and never work with friends. I slept in my design studio for eight years with no showers, and I started a company with my cheap ralph lauren shirts two best friends and 23 years later, we are still the three best friends. I think that everyone should have their own words to live by.

    So too should you eschew specific goals and instead enjoy the process: "The journey of every day, that becomes a career, that is what achievement is." The 51-year old Frenchman was presented with an honorary degree at the ceremony.
