NEW YORK — The question looming over Tommy Hilfiger, who took the stage Wednesday at The French Institute Alliance Francaise’s series of fashion talks, was: Would he address the reports about his business being in play and Phillips-Van Heusen Corp. reportedly being interested?
Hilfiger told moderator Richard Bradley of Worth magazine that he didn’t comment on rumors. But when an audience member asked how the designer felt about other people being in control of his brainchild, Hilfiger replied, “In terms of having a financial partner, that’s just the way it is. I wouldn’t want to be part of a large conglomerate with no control at all, but I have great partners who allow my team to do what is necessary for our brand.”
