Here are comments from some of the many people who worked with him over the years, including several to whom he’s reported.
Bruce Klatsky, former chairman and chief executive officer, PVH Corp., and partner, LNK Partners:
“Allen started his career at PVH before I did — as a merchant, actually — and left before I joined. I convinced him to come back in 1985, and he was an integral part of the turnaround that helped to stabilize our platform and, in turn, enabled us to evolve the company and buy Calvin Klein and subsequently Tommy Hilfiger. I’m so glad we were able to attract him to come back, and so grateful for the role he played in the company’s transformation. Outside of business, he is devoted to his family. I can think of countless times when there was no higher mission than to provide for his wife, Bonnie, and for both his son, David, and his daughter, Ami. Ami has a wonderful orientation toward humanity, and David’s the same way beyond the work he does at PVH. All around, a wonderful guy.”
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“Truth and lies have become a real interesting theme, more than ever, lately,” Emmy nominee Laura Dern told WWD. "It’s a very interesting time to use our voice." Styled by @cristinaehrlich, 📸 @shayanhathaway #wwdeye #emmys2017
“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
