Unveiled: The cover of ‘American Dreamer’, a memoir by Tommy Hilfiger

Set to publish later this year, American Dreams chronicles the life of Tommy Hilfiger: from his childhood and formative years, to the setbacks and challenges faced with sheer determination that has led him to the triumph of helming his own multi-billion dollar global brand.


American Dreamer is a reflection on my experiences in the fashion industry from the last 30-plus years”, said Hilfiger. “It has been incredible to look back on the moments that have defined both my career and my personal life—from my childhood and origins in the fashion world to my enduring passion for pop culture and Americana. It’s an inspiring reminder of all the milestones we’ve surpassed, from our very first billboard in Times Square to bridging the gap between fashion and music. Writing this memoir has truly reaffirmed the incredible journey I’ve had in building a global lifestyle brand.”


The memoir book cover (as shown above) was shot by renowned photographer Richard Phibbs at Tommy Hilfiger’s Fifth Avenue Flagship store in New York City. Written by the designer in collaboration with Peter Knobler, American Dreamer will be published by Ballantine Books and is set for a release date of 1 November 2016.
