About Tommy Hilfiger:
In 1985, fresh from his small home town of Elmira, New York, a young fashion designer with a boyish grin and an unpronounceable name was totally unknown when he launched a Tommy Hilfiger store on Manhattan's Upper West Side. His American "Classics with a twist" soon catapulted him into becoming one of the most famous and successful designer brands in the world. Tommy is a pure American designer, born and bred, continuously inspired by our multicultural society, as he embodies his ethos of classic American cool into a fresh international style. He is passionately involved in a variety of charities and causes, including the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project in Washington, D.C., The Anti-Defamation League, and the Fresh Air Fund as he aspires to help many others fulfill their American Dream. His excitement for all things American that have influenced his lifestyle and work has been reflected in four books published by Rizzoli: All American - A Style Book (1997); Rock Styles (1999); New England Style (2003); and New England Icons and Inspirations (2006).
Book Title: "Iconic America: A Roller-Coaster Ride Through the Eye-Popping Panorama of American Pop
Culture," By Tommy Hilfiger with George Lois.

About the book:
Inspired by Tommy Hilfiger's passion for Americana and George Lois' provocative visual power, Iconic America presents a mosaic of over 400 iconic and iconoclastic images from the melting pot of the American experience. The influence that these iconic images have had on the world is immeasurable; however, it is the way in which they are uniquely juxtaposed on the pages of Iconic America that compels Americans to question who we are, what we stand for, and perhaps, where we should be heading. Not only does Iconic America celebrate the snap, crackle, and pop of American popular culture, it offers a poignant and compelling commentary on America, dramatizing the national ethos in a startlingly and refreshing new way. Cover available exclusively at select Tommy Hilfiger stores worldwide.
