Calvin Klein Incorporated was founded in 1968 by Calvin Klein. The company is headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, New York City and currently owned by Phillips-Van Heusen. In 1968, Klein founded Calvin Klein Limited, a coat shop in the York Hotel in New York City, with $10,000. In 1969 Klein appeared on the cover of vogue magazine. By 1971, sportswear, classic blazers and lingerie were added to his women’s collection. In 1973, he received his first Coty American Fashion Critics Award for his 74-piece womens wear collection and at the time was the youngest recipient to date. Branching into optics was a natural progression for Klein, and his collection has grown to match the brands popularity.
