It was the end of an era on Wednesday in a fashion world that marks time in biannual seasons. The day marked the finish of one of fashion’s longest, and most successful partnerships: that between Barry Schwartz and his boyhood friend Calvin Klein.
Phillips-Van Heusen Corp. on Wednesday completed its deal to buy Calvin Klein Inc., for $430 million, with additional incentives in coming years that could up the ante significantly. Now, Schwartz is getting ready to step aside from a business he’s been associated with for 35 years — and one that, literally, would not have existed without him.

"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.
