Calvin Klein was born in the Bronx, New York in 1942 as the son of immigrants from Hungary and Austria. He attended the High School of Art and Design and later studied at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology from which he received an honorary Doctorate in later years. He spent the early years of his career working at New York City fashion stores after completing an apprenticeship with a cloak-and-suit manufacturer in 1962. In 1968, he and a childhood friend launched their own company. Calvin Klein Limited was a coat shop inside New York City's York Hotel. The first Calvin Klein collection was featured at Bonwit Teller in NYC. Then in September of 1969, Klein was featured in Vogue magazine. By 1973, the company had added women's sportswear, blazers, and lingerie to the collection. Cosmetics, jeans, and menswear followed.

The popularity of Calvin Klein 1980s jeans skyrocketed in the 1980s, and Calvin Klein underwear became a household word after Marty Mcfly's wife of the future called him Calvin because of his underwear label in the movie Back to the Future. In 2002, the company was sold to the Phillips Van Heusen Corporation for mega-millions. Klein remained on as consulting creative director. His influence over fashion was destined to follow for a long time.
