Kenzo Takada Net Worth
Kenzo Takada Net Worth: Kenzo Takada is a Japanese fashion designer who has a net worth of $100 million. Born in Himeji, Japan, in 1939, Kenzo Takada dropped out of Kobe City University of Foreign Studies before enrolling in Tokyo's Bunka Fashion College to study design as one of the school's first male students. He moved to Paris, France, in the mid-'60s, but had to wait until the next decade before he began to experience success as a designer. Takada opened his first store, Jungle Jap, in 1970 and had a model appear on the cover of "ELLE" magazine wearing his designs. He debuted his clothes in Tokyo and New York the next year before winning the Fashion Editor Club of Japan Award. Takada first jumped into designing men's clothing in the early '80s. Five years later, he debuted his first fragrance line, Kenzo de Kenzo, in 1988. He has launched several more perfumes for both men and women, and he released his own skin care line, KenzoKI, in 2001. He retired from designing in 1999, though he has dabbled in several home goods designs since then. The brand Kenzo is now owned by France's LVMH. Takada currently serves as the Honorary President of the Asian Couture Federation.
