Tommy Hilfiger Co-Hosts Dinner with Jonathan Newhouse and Speaks at Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design

On Monday, June 17, Tommy Hilfiger co-hosted a dinner with Jonathan Newhouse, Chairman and Chief Executive of Condé Nast International, to celebrate the third season of London Collections: Men. Following a cocktail reception, guests enjoyed an intimate dinner at the restaurant 34 in Mayfair. Mr. Hilfiger and Mr. Newhouse welcomed an array of international fashion press and VIPs to the event.
While in London, Mr. Hilfiger also visited the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design, which opened in April in Soho. He was the first international designer to present at the College, and he spoke to an audience of over 80 students and industry insiders about his experiences in building a global lifestyle brand. His involvement at campuses around the world is an important part of Mr. Hilfiger’s ongoing efforts to mentor students, and share his experiences in building an internationally-renown brand with other emerging designers.

“I am delighted to be back in London to celebrate London Collections: Men,”
said Tommy Hilfiger. “It’s an honor to be able to support and celebrate the incredible talents in menswear design. I also feel privileged to have been invited to the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design to speak with students. My own experiences at the beginning of my career inspired my commitment to mentoring young people who are dedicated to pursuing their dreams.”

“In years past it was customary for a European gentleman to proclaim, “Je m’habille à Londres”. London with its tradition of tailoring was the destination for any fashionable man. With the establishment of the London Collections: Men, Britain’s capital is again asserting its claim as a fashion capital for menswear, and we at Condé Nast International are completely committed to supporting the market.” Jonathan Newhouse, Chairman and Chief Executive, Condé Nast International
