Phillips-Van Heusen Internship Profile
Phillips-Van Heusen can trace its corporate heritage back to the 19th century when Moses Phillips and his wife began sewing shirts by hand in 1881 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. Shortly after, they moved to New York City and became the first clothiers to place an ad for shirts in the Saturday Evening Post. Sometime later, John M. Van Heusen developed a comfortable collar in Holland and traveled to the United States to find a business partner. He met up with Moses’ son, Seymour, and together they established Phillips-Van Heusen. The company is now a huge fashion powerhouse that owns famous labels, such as Calvin Klein and Sean Jean.
