'ContentGreeks' created this Tommy Hilfiger infographic in celebration of the iconic designer's 63rd birthday on March 24th. The infographic celebrates Hilfiger's life with a thorough look at his personal and professional accomplishments, as well as his downfalls; this truly represents the American dream, and is a classic rags to riches story.

Acting as a timeline, the infographic starts off with information about Hilfiger's dreams as a child and how he kick-started his career. Did you know he had a clothing line prior to 'Tommy Hilfiger' called 'People's Place?'; he had to declare the company bankrupt when he was only 25-years-old. The images then shift gears to major milestones for the Tommy Hilfiger brand, such as 200 stores opening world-wide in 1993, and it being acquired by Apax Partners for $1.6 billion in 2006.

Ending with "Tommy Facts," the infographic offers true insightful behind who he is, and what he has contributed to the fashion community. He had the first designer company to go public on the New York Stock Exchange, and was one of the first to utilize celebrities for marketing.
