The GIII Apparel Group

Senior Account Executive - Karl Lagerfeld Ready to Wear

US-NY-New York


Behind every great company is an even better story. Ours began in 1956, when Aron Goldfarb came to the United States with a European master craftsman's skill and an unwavering desire to succeed. Aron founded G&N Sportswear, and in 1972 his son, Morris Goldfarb, current Chief Executive Officer, joined the Company.


Today, G-III Apparel Group, is a leading manufacturer and distributor of apparel and accessories under licensed brands, owned brands and private label brands with an entrepreneurial culture that flows throughout the comprehensive portfolio of over 30 licensed and proprietary brands, including Andrew Marc, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Kenneth Cole, Cole Haan, Guess?, Tommy Hilfiger, Karl Lagerfeld, Levi's, Dockers, Jessica Simpson, Vince Camuto, Ellen Tracy, Kensie, Ivanka Trump, and G.H. Bass, among others. G-III also has licenses with the four major professional sports leagues, as well as over 100 U.S. colleges and universities. In addition, G-III currently designs, manufactures and markets an extensive range of apparel, including outerwear, dresses, sportswear, beachwear, women's suits and women's performance wear, as well as luggage and women's handbags, small leather goods and various accessories.


Still located in the center of New York City's Garment District, G-III's goals for the future are consistent with its storied past, to produce great products that enable it to reach a broad spectrum of consumers; partner with nationally recognized brands to appeal to a brand conscious apparel market; and, perhaps most importantly, engage the entrepreneurial spirit that got it here by constantly seeking attractive new licenses and acquisitions to expand its reach and abilities.
