Juicy Couture, Trendsetters

Jennifer Cooper, E!

Juicy Couture is easily one of the most wearable fashion labels around, thanks to their flirty dresses, adorable outerwear, eye-catching jewelry and great-fitting denim.

The brand, which made velour track suits famous many years ago, has since evolved into something much more, with tempting fashion and accessories for the whole family.

To learn more about the business, we tapped Matthew Ellenberger, senior VP of creative services, to find out more about his professional journey.

Here's what he shared:
