The First Item Zara's Founder Ever Sold Is So Unexpected
Heads-up: There's a new documentary about Zara coming soon. Refinery29 reports that the film, dubbed Zara: The Story of the World's Richest Man, will be released this fall and will offer a look "at the inner workings of the fast-fashion giant." It will also chronicle the career of the retailer's founder, Amancio Ortega—you may recall that he earns a staggering $761 per minute.
Refinery29 got a first look at the film and divulged the most interesting tidbits. Our favorite fact? Per the documentary, Ortega's first business venture was creating a very unexpected item: bathrobes. He and his future wife created a more affordable version of the ones sold in the boutique where he worked. And so began his career of creating accessible fashion—who would have thought?
