At the age of 18, Tommy Hilfiger started working with fashion. His main business was in buying jeans and bell-bottom pants in New York City and reselling them. In 1985, Hilfiger established the Tommy Hilfiger Corporation. This decision was life-changing decision that turned him to one of the world's leading fashion designers whose signature is defined as “Classic American Cool.” Hilfiger’s first ad campaign cost him $3 million and proclaimed him as one of the "Four Great American Designers for Men," along with Perry Ellis, Calvin Klein, and Ralph Lauren. Today, the Tommy Hilfiger Group is a fashion institution owned by PVH Corp, with Lauren still acting as head designer.
