At 83, the legendary former Bloomingdale’s chairman Marvin S. Traub still logs over 200,000 miles of travel a year in search for what is new and innovative. As is evident from reading his new book, “Like No Other Career: Marvin Traub” (Assouline), there is no one younger in spirit or more curious in the fashion business. Written in collaboration with the fashion business reporter Lisa Marsh, the 176-page tome is a lively and personal documentation of Traub’s career as a top retail consultant and investment banker since “retiring” from Bloomingdale’s in 1991. The book features messages, drawings and photographs from the fashion-world bon ton, including Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Issey Miyake, Hubert de Givenchy, Giorgio Armani, Diane Von Furstenberg and Ralph Lauren.

Former WK12 Year 1’r Rudy Adler recently launched a new website – How I Spent My Stimulus.com. In January, Congress approved $152 billion in economic stimulus checks for millions of American households, intended to boost the economy and avert a recession. Just how this money will be spent remains to be seen. Rudy hopes this website helps shed some light on where the stimulus money is going.

Rudy created this as a collaborative project. All blog entries are submitted by visitors to the site. He’d love for you to contribute — just upload a photo and share your story.
