Today, Simpson, 41, is leading one of the most sought-after fashion empires in the world with The Jessica Simpson Collection.
Created in 2005 by Simpson, The Jessica Simpson Collection has grown into a popular destination over these past 17 years for women and juniors to shop shoes, clothing, accessories, and more. However, in 2015, Simpson made a deal with Sequential Brands Group Inc. with the expectation that their involvement would help expand her line. Instead, Sequential soon found itself in deep financial trouble, directly affecting not only Simpson’s business but also the public image of a company that she had spent years building.
