Fashion icon makes stop in River City

Posted: Updated:

Fashion icon Calvin Klein shared his life story Wednesday night at the Victory Theatre in downtown Evansville.

Klein's advertising campaigns have redefined the way products are marketed to consumers. Among his many honors, Time Magazine in 1996 named him one of the most influential Americans.

He shared lessons from the runway to build a global brand.

"It's very exciting to have somebody who's truly a household name all around the world and it seems like everyone has some sort of personal connection to one of the products that he has, whether it's clothing, fragrance, home design, it's a very diverse and well known business," said Kristen Lund with the University of Evansville.

Klein's visit is sponsored by the Institute for Global Enterprise in Indiana, part of the Schroeder Family School of Business Administration at the University of Evansville.
