In the 90’s, Mickey Drexler swooped into San Francisco to blow up the Gap. Twenty years later, he’s CEO at JCrew and expanding his empire with a spankin new Madewell store in downtown San Francisco. Katie Hintz at Refinery29 has a great interview with Drexler, who shared many of his thoughts on how to succeed in business. My favorite: have a vision and don’t give up on it. He describes how the first two Madewell stores in Dallas and Las Vegas failed miserably, but he knew the concept was a good one and kept trying. If you’d like to help him celebrate his success — AND get 15 percent off all jeans — come to the opening party tonight on the first floor of the Westfield. There will also of course be eats, drinks and a DJ. See you there!
When: Thursday, July 14, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: Madewell, 845 Market Street (1st floor of the Westfield Mall)
