Tommy HilfigerIn his upcoming memoir with Ballantine Books of the Random House publishing group, Hilfiger will revisit his childhood and his origins in the fashion industry, as well as the setbacks, triumphs, and sheer determination that drove him to build a multi-billion dollar global lifestyle brand. The book is due to be released in the fall, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the Tommy Hilfiger brand.

Ex-supermodel Waris Dirie says FGM can end in her lifetime – TRFN

Human rights activist and top model Dirie from Somalia delivers a speech as part of the 4th World Meeting of Human Values and Culture of Lawfulness in MonterreyBy Emma Batha LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Supermodel turned campaigner against female genital mutilation Waris Dirie said on Thursday she was optimistic that FGM could be eradicated in her lifetime, branding the tradition "a cruel and perfidious war on little girls." "FGM breaches all human rights and has no place in any 21st century society," said Dirie, who underwent FGM in Somalia when she was 5 years old and whose sister bled to death after being cut. Dirie said her Desert Flower Foundation aimed to save 1 million girls across Africa from the "barbaric" ritual in the next few years through a sponsorship project which provides food, kerosene and school fees to families who pledge not to cut their daughters. GROWING MOMENTUM AGAINST FGM Speaking after receiving a human rights award at the House of Lords in London, Dirie welcomed the growing global momentum to stamp out FGM, a procedure which can cause lifelong physical and psychological problems.
