In wanting to learn more about the company I then read "Liz Claiborne: The Legend, The Woman" by her husband Art Ortenberg. Now that got boring in a hurry. When he wasn't praising his wife for her looks, charity, courage he was implying it was she, with help from him, that were the main reasons for Liz Claiborne's success, and not near enough was made of Jerome Chazen's contribution.
If there is anyone still interested in reading about Liz Claiborne considering what a hash JCP has made of the brand since they acquired it don't bother picking up her husband's book, read Jerome Chazen's book, it's more interesting, readable and from my perspective much more accurate portrayal of the clothing industry at that time.
It was a fascinating story about Jerry Chazen's career, and about his amazing attitude towards philanthropy. Poignant and wonderful.
It is a must read.
