"Gritty, Honest, Knock Down, Drag Out to LIVE"
As America transformed from fledgling nation to world power, one element remained constant: alcohol. The 18th century saw the Father of His Country distilling whiskey in his backyard. The 19th century witnessed the lavish expenses on wine by the Sage of Monticello, Honest Abe's inclination toward temperance, and the slurred speech of the first president to be impeached.
Mark Weber is the ultimate fashion insider. Starting his career as a clerk in a clothing store, he worked his way up to the big time in New York City, becoming CEO of Phillips-VanHeusen (PVH)/Calvin Klein and then CEO of LVMH Inc. (USA) (Louis Vuitton/ Moet Hennessy) and chairman and CEO of Donna Karan International. In Always in Fashion, Weber walks us through his fascinating career, providing an inspirational and instructional story of his rise to the top, his career disappointments, and his incredible journey back to the top of the fashion industry.
