Fabric of Dreams
Designing My Own SuccessBook - 1998
Anthony Mark Hankins is the American Dream. By his mid-twenties, he had built his own $40 million business when everyone said it was impossible. His lively, honest, and eye-opening personal story paints a vivid portrait of a poor African-American kid from a New Jersey factory town who grew up with hig dreams and the discipline to make them come true, turning his genius, originality, and highly likeable personality into a multimillion-dollar enterprise. Having apprenticed with the best, Anthony realized that he wanted to design wonderful clothes that women like his mother could afford to buy. He became the first in-house designer in JCPenney's history, and now he is affectionately known as the "Calvin Klein of the coupon-clipping set." He tells of the friends who encouraged him, the hard lessons of corporate America, and the extraordinary support of family who wouldn't let him give up.--From publisher description.
