Welome to the website of Gary Wassner - Author, CEO of Hilldun, Chairman of Interluxe Holdings LLC, CFDA Fashion Incubator Advisory Board Member and Mentor, Fordham Fashion Law Institute Advisory Board Member and Project Runway: Fashion Startup Investor
Gary serves as the Chief Executive Officer at Hilldun Corporation, providing some of the most notable, creative designers in the industry with factoring, financing, accounts receivable, purchase order funding, back office support, and mentoring since 1958.
Gary’s first official client was iconic designer, Betsey Johnson, who had recently left her job to begin her own brand, and was trying to fill her first purchase order. Together they sat cross-legged on her showroom floor and started drafting ideas, and creating a functional business structure. Soon to follow were Hilldun’s next few clients, Michael Koors, Badgely Mischka,Tommy Hilfiger, & Marc Jacobs.
