Paralegal Turns Passion for Fashion Into Booming Business

Clothing designer and former paralegal Edwing D'Angelo has turned his love of fashion into a thriving business. He dresses celebrities like Vivica A. Fox and hip-hop violinist Miri Ben-Ari with a Latin flair.

At the urging of his parents, D'Angelo worked in law offices from the age of 15, where he learned a lot about running a business. He studied fashion marketing at the City University of New York's Baruch College, with the idea that he would go to law school and become an attorney in the fashion industry. However, when he designed his younger sister's prom dress in 2001 -- which her friends loved -- D'Angelo quit his paralegal job with $100,000 in the bank and launched his own line of clothing.
