Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 4 (ANI): One of the world's most renowned fashion designers, Tommy Hilfiger, recently launched his memoir entitled 'American Dreamer' which chronicles his life and career.

The company 'Tommy Hilfiger' announced the global launch of the memoir, which went on sale from November 1.

From his beginnings as an eager entrepreneur in Elmira, New York, to founding his namesake brand and building international growth, the memoir shares Hilfiger's most genuine and moving recollections.

"After more than 40 years in the fashion industry, I wanted to record the memories behind my life and brand," said Tommy Hilfiger, "American Dreamer is a roadmap of the moments that have defined both my career and my personal life-from my childhood in Elmira, New York, to building a global business. I'm excited to share my journey and I hope it can inspire others to pursue their dreams."

'American Dreamer' has garnered early praise from various personalities including English singer and songwriter Mick Jagger who recognizes Hilfiger as a brand that was "instantly taken up by rappers and rockers alike" for his "elegant and stylish looks".

" American Dreamer shows how he has managed to be successful in business and done so with integrity. I have come to know Tommy, and every time we talk I learn something new about creating a successful business," said footballer David Beckham.
