London - As the end of the year draws ever closer, FashionUnited takes a moment to reflect back on 2016. Fashion has always been a big business, but this year saw some of the richest individuals working in fashion become even richer, in spite of economical and political uncertainties sweeping across the globe.
Unsurprisingly, the title of the richest person in fashion remains firming in the hands of Amancio Ortega, currently the second wealthiest man in the world.
