Early life

Ralph Lauren was born in The Bronx, New York City,[4][5] to Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants,[6][7][8][9] Frieda (Cutler) and Frank Lifshitz, an artist and house painter,[10][11] from Pinsk, Belarus.[12][13] He is the youngest of four siblings[14][15]—two brothers and one sister.

Lauren attended day school followed by MTA (now known as the Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy), before eventually graduating from DeWitt Clinton High School in 1957.[16][17] He went to Baruch College, at the City University of New York (CUNY) where he studied business, although he dropped out after two years.
