NEW YORK — Major sportswear companies are going for a heavy dose of reality in their spring advertising.
Whether it’s the lasting effect of Sept. 11, the flagging economy, unsteady world politics or a jolting combination, brands such as Liz Claiborne, Jones New York, Kasper, Sigrid Olsen and Emme maintain their customers want to see relevant images rather than surreal fashion shots, at a time when family and friendships are a high priority.

"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.
