NEW YORK — Phillip Salem, who graduated in 2010 from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in fashion merchandise management, has a sophisticated sense of style but scant business experience. That didn’t stop him from opening a 1,800-square-foot multilabel specialty store, called Owen, at 809 Washington Street in the heart of the Meatpacking District and in the company of Intermix, Jay Godfrey, Jeffrey and Diane von Furstenberg.
“I want to take risks on New York-based designers who are not shown in New York,” said Salem, who has a penchant for edgy, fashion-forward designers.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
