Ahhhh, the ultimate Cynthia Rowley… She’s well-known as a NYC-based, American designer, but the fashion legend has worn, and still wears, many (stylish) hats. Her mad skills have lent to the expansion of her empire into a global lifestyle brand that has led to over 60 boutiques, multiple collaborations with brands like Johnson & Johnson (have you see her incredible Band-Aid’s?), Proctor and Gamble, and Birchbox, as well as her playful lines of womenswear, menswear, handbags, shoes, leg wear, shapewear, wetsuits, and the latest, Rowley Eyewear for both men and women. Hell, she even has a Barbie®. One thing is for sure, Rowley has major longevity and endless amounts of creativity. (Can I be her best friend?!) This week, she shares five fun picks in this week’s Friday Five.
