"It's profit with a purpose, it's not charity," said Ms Chou, who was also a director of Karl Lagerfeld Greater China and continues to be an investor in the brand's global business.
After earning degrees in communications and business from the University of Southern California, Ms Chou used Iconix to bring American brands including Badgley Mischka and Madonna's Material Girl to China.

Ms Chou's Everybody & Everyone brand offers clothes such as blazers made from fermented agricultural waste, or lounge pants woven from a wood pulp-based fibre that uses 50 per cent less water and produces half of the emissions of a synthetic equivalent.
I believe these traits of proven top performers in business, as well as other professions, are the keys to success that you must emulate, even more than finding that unique innovation or huge untapped market opportunity.
While they have always been in totally different businesses, both still give much credit to the other for their own success.
Figure out first what you most want to achieve in life I find business people all around me who are working hard to make more money, when what they really want is a work-life balance that allows them to enjoy family and help others.
So if you aspire to be the next Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates in business, you might want to compare the following traits with your own, and focus on adopting the ones you don't have, as much as you focus on your next idea to change the world: 1.
I've noticed that the top performers in business, as in most other professions, have a common set of traits in the way they think, as well as act.

The organization told The Guardian it has hired an independent law firm to investigate sexual-abuse claims, though a People of Praise spokesperson claimed that at the time of Kuehl’s alleged abuse “the survivor’s family and the perpetrator were members of a different religious community.”
Esther told The Guardian, “The basic premise of everything at the People of Praise was that the devil controlled everything outside of the community, and you were ‘walking out from under the umbrella of protection’ if you ever left.”
The People of Praise, which started in South Bend, Indiana, in the 1970s, has about 1,700 mostly Catholic members who tend to live in tight-knit communities.
Sources told The Guardian that “more than two dozen” former members of the organization are currently part of a support group to discuss their experiences, and many of them felt “triggered” by Barrett’s nomination.

Over the previous few days, Kardashian West had posted 15 images on Instagram documenting her trip to Paris fashion week, including a selfie showing off a $4m diamond ring on her finger.
By this point in her career, Kardashian West was one of the most famous women in the world.
Kardashian West – mother of four, breaker of the internet – turns 40 this week, and is marking the move into middle age by launching a shapewear line in the UK, appearing on the cover of Grazia magazine alongside an interview about said shapewear, donating $1m to the Armenian relief fund and becoming Martha Stewart for the pandemic generation with a soon-to-be launched interiors line, KKW Home (towels, shower curtains, sponges).
It was in 2010, just three years into Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the reality TV programme about her family, that Kardashian West decided: “I’ll do anything …” – by which she meant put her name and face to anything.
A year after the Paper cover, Kardashian West would produce her own book, Selfish.
Vaughan Gething, the Welsh health minister, contacted UK government officials in London.
Before taking any decision, Mr Gething sent a letter with his arguments and agreed to wait for a meeting with the transport secretary that was arranged for 6pm that evening — but at 5pm the UK government announced it was keeping Greece off the quarantine list for England anyway.
Furthermore, on too many occasions, from quarantine to track and trace to lockdown restrictions, it became apparent that Mr Johnson was not able to adjust to the reality that in a health crisis he was only the prime minister of England.
Bongkrek acid has been implicated in outbreaks of foodborne illness involving coconut and corn-based products in Indonesia and China.
After spending 12 months in the freezer, a high concentration of bongkrek acid, a respiratory toxin produced by the bacterium pseudomonas cocovenenans, was detected in the dish.
The family, from the city of Jixi in China’s northeastern province of Heilongjiang, ate the deadly dish for breakfast on October 5 and began feeling ill not long after.
In this case, it had spoiled from being frozen, poisoning the family with bongkrek acid – a toxin that formed on in the meal, according to local authorities.
The acid cannot be removed even if thoroughly cooked and there is no medicine available to treat such cases of poisoning, Global Times reported, adding to avoid poisoning, people should not use soaked or mouldy corn to make food, and to not make or eat any food made from fermented grains.

On "Squawk Box" on Monday morning, Gottlieb said, "We're going to have to get through this next wave without the benefit of protective immunity from a vaccine."
While noting he’s optimistic about vaccine trials, Gottlieb said the first patients given inoculations under emergency use, if it's granted, won't have protective immunity until early 2021.
Echoing similar comments from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, Gottlieb said the holiday season and family gatherings are especially precarious for the spread of coronavirus because that’s when people let their guard down.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb is warning that the United States is about "a week away from seeing a rapid acceleration in cases” of Covid-19 as the number of coronavirus infections and hospitalizations surge.
Disclosure: Scott Gottlieb is a CNBC contributor and is a member of the boards of Pfizer, genetic testing start-up Tempus and biotech company Illumina.

But larger figures stepped up their criticism of Mr Andrews, who will have had the state locked down for 19 weeks by November 1, when he plans to lift most restrictions, including enabling hospitality and retail to reopen.
"There’s been a callous indifference by the Victorian government to the loss of jobs in the state and the plight of small business,'' Mr Frydenberg said.
This was despite the number of coronavirus cases now being very low in Victoria and on a par with those in NSW, a state that has had an open economy and lived with small outbreaks for months.
'Callous indifference' Although Prime Minister Scott Morrison has maintained a more diplomatic approach, Mr Frydenberg, a Victorian whose family has been living under lockdown and whose children have missed months of school, exploded on Monday after Mr Andrews' limited lifting of restrictions.
Victorian Liberal senator James Paterson branded Mr Andrews an “authoritarian leader” who had smeared his own citizens as “enemies of the state”.
Cinemagoers may be more comfortable attending when they personally know everyone in the room, and the lack of new releases is also less of a problem when it can re-show older movies on request, including horror films like The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 for the Halloween season, or family films like Monsters, Inc. and How to Train Your Dragon.
Films include new releases including Tenet and The New Mutants Private screenings theoretically offer a way to plug some of the gap.
AMC is offering a selection of new and old films to watch, with auditorium rental prices starting at $99 plus tax.
The USA’s largest cinema chain AMC is making its screens available for private hire, allowing groups of up to 20 people to watch a film on the big screen without having to share an auditorium with strangers.
While older films start at $99 plus tax, newer films like Tenet cost between $149 and $349 plus tax to rent out a screen, according to AMC’s site.
Why It Matters: Drahi’s attempts to take over Cogeco are said to be an effort to consolidate operations of Atlantic Broadband with Altice USA, so it can take on rivals such as Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA), Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR) and Verizon Communications Inc (NYSE: VZ), the Financial Times reported.
Gestion Audem, the Audet family controlling company, holds 69% of all voting rights in Cogeco Inc, which in turn controls 82.9% of all rights in Cogeco Communications.
Under Altice’s terms, the Canadian operations of Cogeco would be sold to Rogers Communications Inc (NYSE: RCI) at an adjusted net price of nearly $3.9 billion.
What Happened: Louis Audet, the executive chairman of Cogeco, in a statement said that the family isn't interested in the $8.4 billion hostile bid made by Altice.
Canadian telecom firm Cogeco Communications Inc’s (OTC: CGEAF) owners — the Audet family — rejected an enhanced hostile takeover attempt by Altice USA, Inc (NYSE: ATUS) on Sunday.
