Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2012 women’s collection was designed for a woman “as much at ease at the hunt club as she is on Park Avenue.”
Where do you go for news when you start your day? I like to read The New York Times and Wall Street Journal on my iPad.
What are your favorite websites? WWD and Style.com are great resources for fashion industry news – their iPad apps make it easy to stay up to date.
How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)? We connect with fans on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to give them an inside view of the brand. We also recently launched a Tumblr page, which displays some of my favorite inspirations.

What radio shows or podcasts do you listen to? I watch CNN, and their podcasts are great while traveling.
What’s your favorite piece of art on display in your home? I have a few pieces by Basquiat and Warhol, but it’s too difficult to pick just one favorite.
Where do you go / what do you do to “disconnect”? I always look forward to time in Mustique with my family.
