J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler in conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Goldberger
New York Magazine once wrote that Mickey Drexler, “could be argued [to have] invented casual chic.” As the CEO of the Gap in the 1990s, Drexler reinvented the brand’s look and message and in the process democratized impeccable style. Since arriving at J. Crew in 2002, he has revolutionized that brand, as well, turning it into one of America’s most respected and reliable upscale style labels. In his talk at The New School, Drexler will discuss lessons learned from his life in mass-market fashion with Paul Goldberger, Joseph Urban Professor of Design at Parsons and Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic, and contributing editor at Vanity Fair.
