BIOGRAPHY

Calvin Klein was bornon 19 November 1942 in The Bronx, American, is Fashion Designer. When it comes to avant-garde fashion, very few designers offer absolutely modern and sophisticated style as Calvin Klein. Endowed with a tasteful sense of fashion, Calvin Klein is one of America’s top fashion designers who created waves through his minimal yet classic designs. He never infused too many colours in his apparels. In fact, Klein best used neutral tones in his ensembles to give them richness and opulence. His Calvin Klein Empire which started off as a small coat company today proudly offers a wide range of products from apparels to fragrance, underwear to footwear and much more. While Klein’s chic designs were a rage, it was his launch of tight-fitting jeans that augmented both the company and his status by leaps and bounds. The denim wear collection had hit bull’s eye and became the talk of the town. As if this were any less, the 1980s witnessed a further boom after the launch of men’s innerwear. While Klein’s products received critical acclaim, his advertisements were severely criticized and created controversy for being outrageously provocative and socially irresponsible. Though the ads were eventually withdrawn, they gave the brand much needed publicity
