Tommy Hilfiger, American fashion designer, brought his exceptional sense of style to the snowy set of THE MARTHA STEWART SHOW on Hallmark Channel. On today’s episode, Tommy treated Martha and the audience to a seasonal fashion show featuring five Hilfiger looks for the Holidays. When chatting about his latest book Iconic America, Tommy said that his All-American family line and campaign was inspired by someone near and dear to him, his wife, Dee Ocleppo, “She’s the inspiration. The muse.” Martha declared her love for the new line and wondered why she wasn’t asked to be in the commercial: “I want to be in one of those sometime! I’m the iconic American mother. Even though I only have one child…But still, I’m a mother to millions.”
