Founded in 1976, Liz Claiborne joined the Fortune 500 list of the largest industrial companies only a decade later, one of the youngest companies ever to achieve this mark. In 1987, Liz Claiborne had sales in excess of $1 billion. All this success was a result of Claiborne’s vision to design and manufacture clothes for professional women.
