While his personal anecdotes focus on how and why Bergdorf helped build the fashion industry during one of the most exciting periods in its history—the late sixties through the early nineties—the author also shares his views on how contemporary retailers have increased profits by skimping on service, resulting in the loss of customer loyalty. The Rise of Fashion and Lessons Learned at Bergdorf Goodman is a valuable resource for anyone who aspires to succeed in the business of luxury fashion.”
