So “Display of Power” by Daymond John is not really a style book; it is more a story about “fashion, branding and lifestyle”. I have never heard of Daymond John or FUBU (no offense, it is me to blame) before I discovered one of my favorite TV shows of all times – “Shark Tank” (more about it here). “Display of Power” is a great book for everyone, not only fashion lovers. It is inspirational on many levels – from finding the power within, to succeeding through determination and commitment, to believing in what you do, and not accepting “no” for an answer. Daymond talks about the importance of branding, especially for fashion business, by sharing how FUBU (For Us, By Us) was born. I love the numerous anecdotal stories that help prove his point as the story about Timberland’s marketing misstep that inspired him to create FUBU. If you want to take a break from all the fictional read around you and you ever dream of career in fashion, I highly recommend that you take a look at Daymond’s story!
