Every year Forbes puts out a list of the world’s wealthiest billionaires to make us all realize just how poor we really are.
This year’s list is topped by Carlos Slim Helu & family, followed closely by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. But who in the fashion and retail industry made the cut? Some of the rankings may surprise you–Zara‘s founder and part-owner Amancio Ortega is the world’s fifth richest man across all industries, outpacing H&M’s Stefan Persson by over $10 billion, and luxury label magnates like Miuccia Prada, Giorgio Armani and Chanel’s Alain & Gerard Wertheimer by over $20 billion. (See what we mean about feeling poorer already?)
While some of the rankings are no surprise at all–for the second year in a row LVMH’s Bernard Arnault is the richest man in the fashion industry with a net worth of $41 billion, making him the fourth richest man in the world, and the #1 richest guy in Europe.
