Mickey Drexler speaks at the New School in Manhattan


“Creativity is not a corporation, it’s a matter of letting people think out of the box. Most companies don’t listen to what people are thinking.” Mickey Drexler spoke to the New School’s University Center in Manhattan about friendly pricing, possible expansion to China, and corporate culture. The current CEO of the J. Crew Group, emphasized the importance of pricing in the current market and the large void for quality priced clothing that meets pricing right in the middle. But really, where is it? Zara, Mango, Topshop, almost deliver but the void still exists. Mickey also emphasizes the importance of an open-minded culture in the modern workplace.  Without creativity, without employees being able to share their ideas, all our old school corporations will soon find their way to an end.  He’s been ale to solve this problem by simply taking down the walls of offices and cubicles that limit a shared space of ideas.  Is it really that simple? Why yes it is.
