Last night 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.
While in London, 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.”
Other guests at the dinner included Dee Hilfiger, Suzy Menkes, Caroline Rush, Founder of Net-A-Porter Natalie Massenet, Matthew Rhys and Dermot O’Leary.
