As a designer, Rebecca Minkoff is known for artfully mixing bohemian romance with downtown rock-and-roll. At her recent spring show at The Grove in Los Angeles, Minkoff’s perspective emanated in a profusion of gauzy blouses and watercolor-inspired botanical prints that breathed fresh life into studded black leather and safety-pin earrings.

In the hope of gleaning insight into the professional acumen and personal grit that have sewn together her trailblazing career, we spoke with Rebecca Minkoff about her role as a designer, a businesswoman and an entrepreneur.
