Eileen Fisher

Eileen Fisher

Eileen Fisher calls herself "a mother, a clothing designer, a business woman," in that order. Originally from Illinois, Fisher moved to New York City in 1973 to work first as an interior designer, then as a graphic artist.

In 1984, with just $350, she founded her clothing business, Eileen Fisher, Inc., based on her idea of providing women with simple, high-quality, comfortable clothes that they could assemble as a "clothing system." Her company's clothes are now sold at sophisticated shops across the country and has sometimes used nontraditional models in print advertisements, including its own employees.
