The Homeless Boy Who Invented Louis Vuitton

168 000 Көрүүлөр 8 млн

Louis Vuitton is the No.1 luxury brand in the world - valued at over $30 billion. Its history dates back to the 19th century and begins with a homeless teenager who could only dream of success. With no money or food, he worked odd jobs with artisans and craftsmen to survive, barely making any money but learned valuable skills that led to pioneering modern luggage and creating a billion-dollar empire.

    I can see a movie made about that, like Leonardo Decaprio playing him, like in the Titanic. (For lack of a better idea on the fly but you know what I mean) It reminds me of one of those historical films like the Titanic or Pearl Harbor. Or even the Green Mile. It looks like an award winning story to me. Its been a long time since I heard of a story so captivating and fresh.

    Lv is a brand, its all hype. Employees of lv work for aound 18$ and hour, the doent even get a discount on lv, and at the end of each season, lv burns the inventory thats left. Lv is was made by the poor, but only allow the rich to own. And yes i have enough money to spend on lv, but i would rather spend it on better brands.

    1821-1892 is wrong or you got his age wrong, because he can't have passed away at the age of 72 if he was born in 1821 and died in 1892.

    Thanks for the educative video ♥️........ I still see Cryptocurrency as one of the best digital investement and I totally live the technology when it comes to the largest crypto assest Bitcoin, even through the assest has been exhibiting some bearish performance of lately. The good thing is that bitcoin bulls had been able to successfully defended the $31,000 support level strongly which is clear thought that the short term correction is seeing it's end soon and willing to tigger a strong uprise above $34,000 resistance region. However *bitcoin trading* has been a success story for me ever since I trading with John Anthony strategy and signals. You can also become a winner today, we should follow the ways of earning more regardless of the current market (bulls or bears), which is trading. Buy the dip and trade........ I have made over 6.9 btc profits not just buying the dip but implement trades with him having traded with my initial 2.3 btc. You can easily get to Mr John Anthony is reachable on here < *W°h°a°t°s°A°P°P[ +1,,9,,,1,,,9,,,,4,,,,1,,,5,,,,6,,,,8,,,,5,,,,3,,,,] * fore more inquiries into profitable trading strategy.
