Biography and Career

Tommy Hilfiger was born on March 24, 1951 in Elmira, New York and he is an American fashion designer and founder of the brand Tommy Hilfiger. He grew up in a Irish-American family. His parents originally intended for him to be an engineer. He attended Elmira Free Academy for high school.

Rather than furthering his education, he started to work in retail at the age of 18. Hilfiger would go to New York City to buy jeans and bell bottom pants which he customized and resold at a local downtown Elmira store, Brown's.

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 wit h frequent contests and live DJ appearances there were often more people hanging out than shopping.

After turning to the design of clothing by designing for the rest of his stores in New York, he moved to New York City with his wife, Susie. He was offered design assistant positions with designers Calvin Klein and Perry Ellis, and was broke he turned them down with greater plans in mind.

Hilfiger has four children with his ex wife Susie, Alexandria, Richard, Elizabeth and Kathleen. Hilfiger put his Greenwich, Connecticut, mansion on the market in the summer of 2008. He married his second wife, Dee Ocleppo former wife of Gianni Ocleppo.
