Applauded by a group of American and French retailers, Marvin Traub, the former chairman of Bloomingdale’s, launched his Assouline book, “Like No Other Career,” at the American Embassy in Paris Thursday night.
After being introduced by ambassador Craig Stapleton, Traub contrasted the conditions of his first visit to France with the magnanimity of the embassy reception, attended by the likes of former French prime minister Edith Cresson, Jean Bousquet of Cacharel, Philippe Houze of Galeries Lafayette, Harrods’ Michael Ward, Saks Fifth Avenue chief Stephen I. Sadove and Jim Gold of Bergdorf Goodman.
