Tommy Hilfiger says fashion brand was inspired by his dyslexia
June 14, 2016
International fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger says he was inspired by his dyslexia to build his fashion brand.
Hilfiger, who launched his fashion range in 1985, said that his difficulty to read well while in school led him to start his luxury fashion house at the age of 17.
He said that his feeling that he would never succeed motivated him to think of what else he could do.
The fashion legend started off by running his first shop from the boot of his car.
