NEW YORK — Stan Fieger, a 50-year veteran of the intimate apparel industry, died May 17 of lung cancer at his home in Riverdale, N.Y. He was 80.
Fieger worked as a sales executive for a number of foundations, daywear and sleepwear companies, including Milco, Jolie Intimates, Planet Lingerie and Bamboo Lingerie. He also headed his own sales representative company called Stan Fieger Sales in the Eighties.
A longtime supporter of industry organizations, Fieger served as president of the Intimate Apparel Square Club from 1985 to 1986, and received the organization’s Al Jaffin Award in 2000 for his industry leadership and community service.
“Stan was a pillar of the industry,” said Steve Chachkes, a friend and a partner in Next Generation Intimates. “He held prominent positions with many companies throughout his career.”
His wife, Susan, said, “He loved the [IASC’s charity] work with the children at the Rusk Institute and would always visit the chronically ill children who were not well enough to attend the Hanukkah-Christmas and Passover-Easter parties.”
In addition to his wife, Fieger is survived by a son, Jason, and a daughter, Nancy Vangrafsky.
