Apparel, Luxury & Fashion Accessories

There is no easy way to rank the world's top fashion and accessories brands and businesses since many of them are privately owned or part of larger groups. Valuation surveys by Interbrand or Millward Brown Optimor (Brandz) are helpful, but disagree with one another in their estimates and omit several key brands. However, the Interbrand ranking offers a starting point:
