Tommy Hilfiger may be busy running an international fashion brand, but he still found time to write about the experience. Hilfiger’s first autobiography, American Dreamer, will be published by Random House, Women’s Wear Daily reports. The book will be filled with both personal memories and business advice.
“A lot of people who are building brands, whether they’re fashion brands or other brands, could learn a lot from the way we did it,” he said at the Fashion Group International’s Rising Stars cocktail party.
But all of those memories didn’t come easy. “I had to dig and dig and dig and go way back and think about my life from when I was old enough to remember until now, and in chronological order,” the 64-year old American designer said.
The book—which will cover everything from his “crazy” times in the '70s at Studio 54 to how he built a $6.7 billion American-made company—will be published in October by Random House.
