He is a well-known fashion designer, famous for creating his own company named after him. During his career Tommy has created many product lines, including “True Star Gold”, “Red Label”, “Tommy Jeans”, “Hilfiger Athletics”, “Tommy Girl” among others. Despite the fact that he is now 64 years old, Tommy still continues creating new products and expanding his company.

So how rich is Tommy Hilfiger? It is estimated that Tommy’s net worth is $250 million. It is clear that the main source of this sum of money is the work of Tommy’s clothing company.

Tommy Hilfiger Net Worth $250 Million

Tommy’s father was a jeweler so maybe it also had an influence on Tommy’s choice to also become interested in arts and design, and why he studied at The High School of Art & Design. Tommy did not continue his studies after high school, but decided to start working and saving money. After some time of saving, Tommy was able to open a store, called “People’s Place”. The store turned out to be quite successful and this was the time when Tommy’s net worth really began growing. Despite this fact, the shop was closed and then Tommy received invitation to work with such designers as Perry Ellis and Calvin Klein. Strangely, Tommy did not accept any of the offers, and in 1985 he created his own company, called “Tommy Hilfiger Corporation”. This had a huge impact on the growth of Tommy Hilfiger’s net worth, as it soon became one of the most successful and famous in the fashion industry.

In 2005 there was the reality show created, which showed the competition between people who wanted to work with Tommy. The show was called “The Cut” and gained a lot of attention. In 2006 Hilfiger decided to sell his company and focus on his other projects. In 2012 he started working on the show called “American Idol”. Despite various criticisms that he has received and all ups and downs in his career, Tommy has been able to become one of the best designers and businessmen in the fashion industry.

If to talk about Tommy Hilfiger’s personal life, it can be said that in 1980 he married Susie Hilfiger, with whom he has 4 children. Unfortunately, their marriage ended in 2000, and eight years later Tommy married Dee Ocleppo and is living together with her up until now; they have one child. All in all, Tommy Hilfiger is a very talented and successful fashion designer. As he has been working in the fashion industry for a very long time, his name is known and acclaimed among other designers as well. Product lines created by Tommy are known all over the world, and he has many fans perhaps waiting for his new projects.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on no longer chairing the Board of his company] It's liberating in that I don't have to be in meetings every single day. But I miss it because I'm sort of a control freak and I would like to be able to make the decisions on every color of every button and on every person we hire.
2When I see people wearing floral prints, I think they really don't have great taste. Why would you want to wear a print that you see on a bedspread or wallpaper in an older person's home?
3Clothes aren't going to go out of style, ever. So he who has the most attractive offering at the right price at the right time in the right place will remain in business.
