Bidermann Industries, a powerhouse of designer labels throughout the late Seventies and Eighties, is planning a reunion. The event will take place June 3 at the Hudson Terrace at 621 West 46th Street in New York at 7 p.m. The cost is $120, which includes a donation, cocktail party and “and best of all, great memories,” according to event organizers. The event will also serve as a fund-raiser for Haitian Relief. According to Ken Sitomer, a former chief executive officer of Bidermann, between 400 and 500 people are expected to attend. Those interested in attending should contact Chris Calligan at email@example.com. Founded in 1975, Bidermann had many high-profile divisions, including Calvin Klein Men’s Wear, Ralph Lauren Women’s Wear, Yves Saint Laurent Men’s Wear, Karl Lagerfeld Women’s Wear, Bill Robinson and Daniel Hechter, as well as Cluett, Peabody, Arrow and Gold Toe. Bidermann declared Chapter 11 in 1995.
