NEW YORK — Ben Klein was once known along Seventh Avenue as “the little king,” which was not a reference to royal lineage but rather his general portage: short and temperamental.
During his career behind the sportswear house Junior Sophisticates, where designers such as Chuck Howard, Mary Ann Restivo and Klein’s first wife — fashion’s famous Anne —started out, Klein commanded a respect that was still fresh in the minds of those who recalled the life of the entrepreneur, who died on Monday at an assisted living center near Del Ray, Fla. He was 91.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
