Skimm'd from the Couch: Eileen Fisher

The fashion founder’s secret to success: “I’m always listening to people.”

Eileen Fisher started her career as an interior and graphic designer. But that changed in the 80s. Eileen took a trip to Japan, where the kimono inspired her to start her own fashion brand. With no experience in clothing design. It’s worked out for her: These days, she’s the woman behind – you guessed it – Eileen Fisher.

On the Couch, she talks to us about how she started her business (4:15), growing her company as an introvert (9:20), and why her company doesn’t have your average leadership structure (15:30).

PS: Our book is (finally) out. It covers allll the most important parts of being an adult, like negotiating your salary. Saving for retirement. Or reading a wine list. Get it
