Getting ready for the holidays with the CFDA and Kenneth Cole! Kenneth Cole is among the few designers featured in 'The CFDA Loves The Holidays' shop at the new Fred Segal flag ship store on Sunset Boulevard, LA.
This Veterans Day, Kenneth Cole Productions remembers all the sacrifices made by our military. While no amount of appreciation will be sufficient enough to honor them, today and tomorrow we celebrate and honor our Veterans and their families.
To commemorate Veteran’s Day this year, KCP joined forces with Men’s Warehouse to produce the below video celebrating the impact of the AWEARNESS program in the United States.

The Company also designs, develops, markets and sources sportswear, footwear, handbags and other accessories under the Le Tigre brand name. In addition, the Company designs, develops and sources private label footwear and handbags for selected retailers. The Company’s products are targeted to appeal to fashion conscious consumers, reflecting a modern metropolitan perspective and a lifestyle uniquely associated with Kenneth Cole. These products include core basics that generally remain in demand from season to season and fashion products that are designed to establish or capitalize on market trends. The combination of core products and fashion styles provides freshness in assortments and maintains a fashion-forward image, while a multiple brand strategy helps diversify business risk.

Are you ready to try us on?
I worked at Kenneth Cole full-time (More than 5 years)
The people is what made this company great. The people who worked there were competent, aggressive yet amazing to work with. Over the years the company had a complete turnover and the new group changed the company culture. The company culture was the no.1 in the industry.
Human Resources is very unprofessional. Hired poor managers who didn't understand how to manage or the company brand.
Advice to Management
Get professional HR employees . Look to create the positive corporate culture you once had who have a full understanding of the brand .
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kenneth Cole (New York, NY) in March 2016.
I interviewed on the phone and then 2 weeks later in person. I originally applied for the Womens Footwear Design Intern position, but after my phone interview it was suggested that I apply for the Mens Apparel Technical Design Intern position. The phone interview was conducted by HR and then the in-person interview was conducted by the people who would be my boss.
