We try to find the lines that know how to follow the trends and produce the product at the right price."-- Lee RoskiNancy Milgrim Showroom: 1347 Principal: Nancy MilgrimLines: Actionwear, Grand Avenue, Lynn Ritchie, L. Bates, Tina Hagen, Votre Nom"We're a full service showroom with a hands-on approach. As the fourth generation in a retail family, I understand that, just as retailers have to give service to their customers, as a rep we have to give customer service to our stores."-- Nancy MilgrimBoe ChmilShowroom: 1340 Principal: Boe ChmilLines: Bettina Riedel, Johnny Heaven, Michael Simon, Platinum, Silver Connection, Studio 1"I try not to duplicate any one manufacturer. We offer the customer one-stop shopping -- a harmonious mix of sportswear, knitwear and dresses. There isn't one price point that dictates -- it should be more of a look than a price point."-- Boe ChmilSteven B.

You can't target a price point -- people are trying to buy quality and a look for a little less expensive price."-- Steve Jacobson<FD:"2.x Reference">
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
