Notably, a list of the world’s largest apparel companies can also be compiled using the information in Forbes‘ Global 2000 list. Scrolling down the list, Christian Dior definitively takes the top spot with a market value of $76.4 billion USD, with a “composite score of revenues, profits, assets and market value” higher than any similar numbers for other companies in its lane. In general, Christian Dior is ranked as the world’s 150th largest company.
