Have you ever wondered how fashion icons create their empire? How the most basic casual wear can be so popular that they become a staple in peoples wardrobe ? James Perse is an example of this kind of designer, and his story shows how a basic idea can lead to a fashion empire.

Growing up in Los Angeles, James Perse was exposed to the best of two worlds, the beach and sports, as well as LA fashion. His father, Tommy Perse, was the owner of a high fashion store, Maxfield, where he spent a lot of his time when he wasn't outdoors.

Being extremely interested in sports, James first designed what he believed was flawed, the baseball cap. After perfecting his baseball cap with immaculate style, fit and colors, in 1991 he put them in his fathers store and instantly attracted clients.

He soon after began making women's t-shirts, tapping into what he believed to be a dry market. In 1996 James founded his first line of women's' knits, which soon progressed into two casual collections; Standard James Perse and James Perse Los Angeles ready-to wear- items. By 1998, his brand expanded into a men's collection and later into children's wear.

In 2003 James Perse opened the first retail store, exhuming the culture and upbringing of James himself. In 2007 they launched the online shopping site, opening the brand to a wider spectrum of people.

James Perse has grown into a world wide brand, known and loved for its simplicity and comfort. As said on the James Perse website, "His passion for minimalist architecture, influenced by warm west coast indoor outdoor living, and the casual clothing that's inspired by it, ultimately resulted in James personal design philosophy and aesthetic- low maintenance high fashion- emphasizing elegance and comfort..."

James Perse built himself into a fashion icon with a background of the beach, and the knowledge of high fashion. His basic idea of perfecting the ball cap transformed into the need for cozy casual knits. His understanding of classic comfort has taken over the market and created a nearly untouchable empire.

One for One

A successful and stylish shoe company is on a mission to give something back.
TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.

The TOMS Story:
In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. Blake returned to Argentina with a group of family, friends and staff later that year with 10,000 pairs of shoes made possible by TOMS customers.

As of September 2010, TOMS has given over one million pairs of new shoes to children in need through Giving Partners around the world.

To helo raise awareness on he impact a pair of shoes can have on a child's life TOMS had the idea for one day with out shoes. "Walk without shoes, work without shoes, dance without shoes" In April 2010 over 250,000 people went without shoes for one day and over 1,600 events took place around the globe. Join the movement next April 25 2011, and help a child in need by picking up your own pair of TOMS

For TOMS, giving a pair of shoes to a child in need isn't enough. TOMS has paired up with Movember Foundation to create some delightfully debonair Limited Edition TOMS, available for men and women, in support of Men's health. Funds raised benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.

Toms Shoes has now become something of a movement rather than a business and with a host of designers on board the brand has acquired an array of celebrity fans from Demi Moore to Keira Knightly. Even Bill Clinton has a pair. With the holidays just around the corner TOMS are the perfect gift!
