The Richest People In Fashion

The 2012 Forbes' Billionaire List is laced with fashion moguls, but not just the fancy kind. While the rankings include CEOs and household names (Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren), it's also sprinkled with some more under-the-radar entries, like the founder of Spanx (the youngest woman on the list at 41). And there's also a bevy of fast fashion tycoons, clearly laughing their way to the .0001% of the 1%, one $7 t-shirt at a time.

Click through below to see some of the most notable fashion industry billionaires who made the list this year:

Bernard Arnault
