Behind the Scenes: Threads of Color Market Appointment at Tommy Hilfiger Archives

Yesterday, I accompanied Professor Ionia Dunn Lee, founder of non-profit Threads of Color, and Lakisha Youngblood, an LIM College student, to the archives of Tommy Hilfiger. It was surreal to see a huge room filled with Hilfiger designers (lots of runway clothes which were never mass produced). I even saw a metal bustier that was worn by Naomi Campbell once and is never to be worn again! With the help of the charming John Burke, Director of the Company Archive and Corporate Closet at Tommy Hilfiger, and his ever helpful assistant Sarah, we picked out some iconic Hilfiger ensembles for the “Salute to America” Fundraiser. This event which is a Fashion Mannequin and Informal Fashion Presentation to be held on on January 11th, 2010 at Bernstein Display, will raise scholarship funds for fashion students and promote the global diversity of American Fashion Designers.

Want to know what we picked out? Then you should attend the event – it’s only $20 for general admission! You can buy tickets at the Threads of Color site.
