Calvin Richard Klein is an Hungarian-American fashion designer. In 1968,
he launched the company that would later become Calvin Klein Inc.
Klein was one of several design leaders raised in the Jewish immigrant
community in the Bronx, New York along with Robert Denning and Ralph Lauren.
Calvin Klein became a protégé of Baron de Gunzburg through whose introductions
he became the toast of the New York elite fashion scene, even before he had his
first mainstream success with the launch of his first jeans line. Calvin Klein
was immediately recognized for his talent after his first major showing at New
York Fashion Week. Klein was hailed as the new Yves Saint-Laurent, and was
noted for his clean lines.
Born November 19, 1942 his primary personality traits are ruled by the
Chinese Zodiac elemental animal, the Water Horse. Water adds fluidity to the
free flowing Horse sign. This, coupled with the Horse's innate instinct to
roam, often leads to indecision. He is the Horse most likely to embark on many
different activities without ever completing one. This makes him somewhat
difficult to deal with from a business standpoint. Already the life of a party,
his Water (communications ability) element makes him an appealing companion in
a social setting, be it on a one to one basis, or as a part of a large group.
