Forbes positioned Kathy Ireland as having transitioned from super-model to super-mogul. But she relates that design and business were always her passion, since she was a little girl. Modeling seemed more of a detour, a very successful one at that, but her path had always been business.
Kathy Ireland will share her journey as an entrepreneurial child, whose unexpected detour as a model, delayed rather than opened, the doors of her dreams: motherhood, philanthropy and fashion CEO.
Kathy recently was featured on the cover of Forbes Magazine. In 2011, she received the Phenomenal Women of the Year Award from the YWCA and received the American Heritage Award from the Anti-Defamation League.
