If you were looking to add a little flavor to your arsenal of fresh outfits during the '90s, Tommy Hilfiger was definitely high on the list of brands you were checking for. Founded by Tommy Hilfiger in 1985, the brand aspired to modernize the Ivy-League, prep-school look -- and managed to accomplish that feat by the mid-'90s, when Tommy was one of the more popular clothing lines among American youth.
The massive success would result in Hilfiger being named Menswear Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 1995. They also introduced women's clothing in 1996, with the late R&B singer Aaliyah serving as the spokesperson and face of the brand -- a testament to its stronghold on the pulse of pop culture.
Tommy Hilfiger has seen a resurgence in recent years, racking 6.7 billion in global sales in 2014. Once championed by the likes of former Brand Nubian member Grand Puba and many other hip-hop luminaries, Hilfiger is undoubtedly one of the memorable clothing lines to come out during the '90s and remains an iconic name in fashion circles.
