Los Angeles - On Oscar Sunday February 25th, 2007 the Beverly Hills Hotel's Crystal Ballroom will once again provide the venue for the arrival of approximately 150-200 Academy stars who will attend the hottest celebrity Awards party in town with even bigger names than last year- Announcing The 17th Annual Night of 100 Stars Black Tie Dinner Gala.
Norby Walters reprises his role as Producer and Dinner Chairman. Peter Nygard of Nygard International ® is Co-Host.
Peter Nygard has used his reputation for flair and showmanship to develop Nygard International, the world's foremost creator of casual elegant separates for the active over 25.
Peter Nygard's success story all began on DEC1, 1967, when he gathered his life savings and borrowed $8,000 capital to purchase 20% of a women's garment manufacturer with $800,000 in annual sales, which within a few years he owned outright - only to rename it 'NYGÃ RD' & then turn it around from near bankruptcy into a bustling Billion dollar dynasty that it is today! The speed with which NYGÃ RD claimed his #1 position in the industry is attributed to the uniqueness of his business decisions and his work ethic that includes 14-16 hour days/seven days a week. But then again, as Nygard says, 'The only time you are working is when you wish you were doing something else.'
In the early '70s, Peter Nygard worked in shipping at Jacob's Ladies Wear in Winnipeg. Since buying the company with a loan, he has turned Nygard International into a multi-million dollar fashion manufacturer and retail operation, recently described as the largest women's clothing manufacturer and supplier in the world.
The NYGÃ RD Brand Power is escalating as a result of strategic alliances with Dillard's. NYGÃ RD, Canada's #1 Women's Fashion House launched NYGÃ RD Fashion World across the nation in Dillard's the largest nameplate in fashion apparel retailing. Peter Nygard will travel to Dillard's stores across the US making personal appearances to showcase his collections & meet with his customers.
NOV15-18-06, Peter Nygard will make personal appearances in Dillard's stores throughout the Dallas area and Houston from NOV29 through DEC2-06.
NYGÃ RD Fashion World will include Peter Nygard & NYGÃ RD Collection. The Dillard's / NYGÃ RD alliance offers the fit and style for every woman whether she is petite, regular or women's sizes. Annual sales are approacing $1 Billion.
