Mindful : December 2013
December 2013 mindful 51 business Fisher in her meditation room at home. Some day, Fisher says, the plan may be used to turn over the entire company to its employees. She also loves spending time with her children. She took both of them with her to China to visit factories a nd see how the workers there lived. Her 20-year- old daughter, Sasha, is a window into a younger world, a nd perhaps the next generation of loyal customers. “She goes through my closet and digs out old things and does new fun things with them I wouldn’t have thought of,” Fisher says. As we leave the conference room, Fisher invites me to accompany her to a dinner with people from the meditation group that uses space in Ir vington. As we’re walking out, there’s a lot of hub- bub. It’s market week, when buyers come to look at the new line. Fisher has seen it for the first time that day. She gives it her blessing. As we pass by dozens of women looking at the new clothes, she quietly slides by on the periphery, almost unno- ticed. When she is spotted, warm hellos are shouted. She stops briefly, smiles broadly, and moves on, not wanting to become the center of attention. No entourage accompanies us as we leave the building. In the elevator, Fisher and a coworker sha re stories about their children. On the ride to the restaurant, her attention is on her companion, not her iPhone, even though she’s been out of touch for hours. In the restaura nt, someone mentions one of the latest fashion trends, some- thing about T-shirts. Everyone looks to Fisher for comment. “I don’t know,” she says, setting off a shockwave of laughter. But it’s no surprise. Eileen Fisher has never been about the latest fad. Her fad is timelessness, and for ma ny people, it couldn’t come at a better time. ● “I’m in a letting-go phase. I enjoy being on the periphery, gently holding something rather than being in the center of it all.” Barry Boyce is Editor-in-Chief of Mindful.
