Faces and Places in Fashion: Bernard Holtzman of Harvé Benard


Part presentation, part Q&A, FIT's "Faces & Places in Fashion" lecture series is an opportunity to connect students and the public alike to the pulse of the fashion industry in an open and conversational setting.
Bernard Holtzman describes how he created his 100 million dollar a year career-oriented, women's fashion design company. He explains how most of his firm's production has moved to eastern Europe and Russia and makes most of its profit at discounters like Filene's or Loehmann's rather than department stores. His prime competition is the retailers who are becoming manufacturers.
