Tommy Hilfiger talks with Fern Mallis about how he got his start as a fashion designer and retailer, in Elmira, New York. "Our first store was in a basement in Elmira, New York. We painted it black and called it People's Place. We burned incense, played really cool music and all of our school friends came shopping. And no other store in the area had what we had. We had really cool clothes."
