  • Tommy HilfigerBorn (March 24, 1951 ) (age59) Elmira, New York, U.S.A.Nationality American Education Elmira Free Academy Labels Tommy Hilfiger

  • Early LifeHilfiger was born and raised in Elmira, New York. The second of nine children, he grew up in an Irish-American family; He claims direct descent from Scottish poet Robert Burns. His parents originally intended for him to be an engineer. He attended Elmira Free Academy for high school..

    He later opened his own store, named The People's Place, around the block in downtown Elmira. Although the store was a hot spot for teens with frequent contests and live DJ appearances, there were often more people hanging out than shopping. Over the years, a number of stores closed in downtown Elmira as shopping traffic shifted to the new Arnot Mall in Horseheads, New York

  • CareerAfter turning to the design of clothing by designing for the rest of his stores in upstate New York, Hilfiger moved to New York City with his now estranged wife, Susie. Although he was offered design assistant positions with designers Calvin Klein and Perry Ellis, and was broke, he turned them both down with greater plans in mind. In 1984, he founded the Tommy Hilfiger Corporation

    In 1998, Hilfiger gave singer Aaliyah her endorsement deal, in which he honored her in his Summer 1998 fashion show in Jamaica.

    Largely due to declining sales, in 2006, Tommy Hilfiger sold his company for $1.6 billion

    In March 2010, Phillips-Van Heusen, owner of Calvin Klein, bought the Tommy Hilfiger Corporation for $3 billion.

  • Personal Life Hilfiger has five children with his ex-wife Susie: Alexandria, Richard, Elizabeth, Kathleen and LilyJack Hilfiger put his Greenwich, Connecticut, mansion on the market in the summer of 2008 for an asking price of $27 million He married his second wife, Dee Ocleppo, former wife of Gianni Ocleppo, famous Italian Tennis player of the 1980s,

  • STORES

  • CriticismsHilfiger has been criticized for manufacturing clothes in sweatshop conditions in the United States territory of Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands.

    As a U.S. Commonwealth, clothes made there can be labeled "Made in the USA", but federal labor laws including the minimum wage do not apply.

    In March 2000, the company, along with other defendants, settled a class action suit brought by Saipan garment workers, which had alleged mistreatment by over 20 large U.S. clothing manufacturers.
