Writing my memoir was therapeutic: Tommy Hilfiger
Tommy Hilfiger enjoyed reflecting on his life and over 30 years in the fashion industry when he wrote his memoir ‘American Dreamer’.
The 65-year-old fashion label boss - who launched his self-titled fashion house in 1985 - has found it “interesting” reflecting on his over 30-year career in the fashion industry as he penned the book, reported Women’s Wear Daily.
“‘American Dreamer’ is a reflection on my experiences in the fashion industry from the last 30-plus years. It has been incredible to look back on the moments that have defined both my career and my personal life - from my childhood and origins in the fashion world to my enduring passion for pop culture and America. It’s been months and months of writing. It’s like therapy,” he said. The book documents Hilfiger’s beginnings in Elmira, New York, in a family of nine children to his first foray into the fashion business with his store.
