An Evening with Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein hosted CFDA {FASHION INCUBATOR} designers for An Evening With….


  • Women’s Creative Director for the Calvin Klein Collection, Francisco Costa
  • Men’s Creative Director for the Calvin Klein Collection, Italo Zucchelli; and,
  • Creative Director of Shoes & Accessories for Calvin Klein, Ulrich Grimm


Held in the Calvin Klein showroom in the Garment District, designers from the 3.0 class as well as alumni of the CFDA {FASHION INCUBATOR} gathered to hear Francisco, Italo and Ulrich each share anecdotes from their early days in fashion “sweeping floors, cutting fabrics” and “[staying] hungry” all the way to the top; where they are constantly “inspired by each other”, working as a team to produce the collections for one of the most iconic brands in history.
