In 1968, Calvin Klein founded Calvin Klein Ltd., a coat shop in the York Hotel in New York City, with $10,000. Legend has it that a year later a buyer from Bonwit Teller got off the elevator on the wrong floor, and ended up placing a $50,000 order.

The most influential fashion designer of the late 1940s and 1950s, CHRISTIAN DIOR (1905 to 1957) dominated fashion after World war II with the hourglass silhouette of his voluptuous New Look. He also defined a new business model in the post-war fashion industry by establishing Dior as a global brand across a wide range of products. The actual name of the line of his first collection, presented in early 1947, was Corolle (roughly petal in French), but the phrase New Look was coined for it by Carmel Snow, the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar. Dior’s designs were more voluptuous than the boxy, fabric-conserving shapes of the recent World War II styles, influenced by the rations on fabric. He was a master at creating shapes and silhouettes; Dior is quoted as saying “I have designed flower women.” His look employed fabrics lined predominantly with percale, boned, bustier-style bodices, hip padding, wasp-waisted corsets and petticoats that made his dresses flare out from the waist, giving his models a very curvaceous form. The hem of the skirt was very flattering on the calves and ankles, creating a beautiful silhouette. Initially, women protested because his designs covered up their legs, which they had been unused to because of the previous limitations on fabric. There was also some backlash to Dior’s designs form due to the amount of fabrics used in a single dress or suit–during one photo shoot in a Paris market, the models were attacked by female vendors over the profligacy of their dresses–but opposition ceased as the wartime shortages ended. The New Look revolutionized women’s dress and reestablished Paris as the center of the fashion world after World War II.
According to the New York City-based Luxury Institute’s Luxury Brand Market Analysis (LBMA) for Luxury Handbags, Coach has the largest mindshare among wealthy consumers; 52% said they are familiar with the Coach brand. However, as income increases, awareness of Gucci handbags increases, and for wealthy consumers with incomes over $300,000 Gucci’s (34%) almost equals Coach (38%). With regard to market share (the share of wealthy consumers who bought each specific luxury brand in the past 12 months), Coach leads at 29%, but many brands compete heavily for the rest of the pie. Details for each brand, and other critical data, are now available in this survey, as are additional insights related to attributes of choosing a handbag and men vs. women handbag shopping behavior.
