Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Ken Downing, head of Neiman Marcus fashion. The following is an excerpt from my 5 part interview with him I hope you will enjoy following my conversation with Ken as much as I have enjoyed capturing his wisdom. I've listened to Ken's words and played them over in my mind. Ken is not only a fashion icon, but mentor to so many moving up in "the business" and truly the man with the pulse on the industry. I can't wait to share his predictions for what will be hot in 2018 fashion! Stay tuned!
