In honor of Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power’s upcoming book, The Career Code: Must-Know Rules for a Strategic, Stylish, and Self-Made Career ($17), we’re kicking off an interview series featuring 17 questions (in honor of the book's 17 chapters) about the work lives of the most inspirational female leaders in the fashion industry. We tapped Rebecca Minkoff and Lauren Conrad. Up next? A.L.C.’s Andrea Lieberman.
Gigi Hadid, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Kate Bosworth, and Olivia Palermo have all worn her line. We’d continue to list the celebrity fan club, but we’d be here for a while. She put Jennifer Lopez in that down-to-there green Versace dress—you know the one that inspired the creation of Google Images? She had a retail store in New York called Culture and Reality with a cult celebrity following. In short, Andrea Lieberman has conquered the fashion world from practically every angle, which is why we were beyond thrilled she agreed to be part of our Career Code series.
Scroll down for Lieberman’s sage advice, covering everything from the number one quality she looks for when hiring to how to graciously quit a job.
