Synopsis >

With more than 300 stores, nearly $2 billion in sales and even the First Lady as a fan, J.Crew has transformed from a once-flailing, lackluster brand to a fashion force. Leading J.Crew is CEO Millard Mickey Drexler, known for his intuitive sense of what the public craves and his ability to lift troubled companies to new heights. Since taking over J.Crew in 2003, Drexler has successfully introduced designer quality clothing for the masses -- driving the company's revenues up 170 percent. From New York to Italy, CNBC anchor David Faber explores the process of conceiving, creating and marketing a new line of clothing.
