Tommy Hilfiger Corporation debuted in 1985. Tommy Hilfiger brand became popular in the U.S. after it was launched in the mid-1980s continuing to gain popularity globally throughout the 1990s and onwards under the original leadership of founder, designer and namesake Tommy Hilfiger and Chief Executive Officer Fred Gehring, the brand can be found in leading department and specialty stores, as well as in its own expanding network of freestanding retail stores, worldwide.[2] When PVH Corp.
