To the strains of the Sarah Brightman song “Time to Say Goodbye,” a stream of friends, family and apparel industry colleagues of the late Dick Baker filed into The New York Times’ building on Thursday evening to pay tribute to the former Ocean Pacific president and chief executive officer, who died on April 14 after battling colon cancer.
In an auditorium that included J. Crew ceo Millard “Mickey” Drexler, Chanel global ceo Maureen Chiquet, former Burberry ceo Rose Marie Bravo, Tommy Hilfiger USA president Colleen Kelly, former Liz Claiborne ceo Paul Charron and former Barneys New York ceo Howard Socol, a roster of Baker’s longtime friends spoke about his career in the fashion industry, his generous and humorous nature and his love for his family.
