Meet the Saks Insiders

Get to Know Terron Schaefer, the Man Behind the Magic!

Creative, inspiring and a Renaissance Man are just a few of the ways that people have described Terron Schaefer, Saks Fifth Avenue’s Executive Vice President, Chief Creative Officer. Just seen as a judge on “Fashion Star,” Schaefer is responsible for the overall experience of shopping at Saks. Here, he chats with us about what it takes to become a great designer, some great fashion advice and why he decided to work in the fashion industry in the first place. I knew I wanted to work in fashion when… I had my first suit made as a young boy in London on Savile Row at Anderson & Sheppard — selecting fabric, looking at linings, choosing buttons.

I knew I wanted to work in fashion when…

I had my first suit made as a young boy in London on Savile Row at Anderson & Sheppard — selecting fabric, looking at linings, choosing buttons.

My first job out of college was…

Working for World Boat in London, a company owned by the legendary Stavros Niarchos

I’ve learned the most in my life from…

My father — the most elegant man I ever met.

The best thing about my job is…

Creating (and maintaining) the image of Saks Fifth Avenue.

My biggest challenge is…

However much we would like advertising to be a science — because life would be simpler that way — the fact is that it is not. It is a subtle, ever-changing art, defying formulization, flowering on freshness and withering in imitation; where what was effective one day, for that very reason, will not be effective the next, because it has lost the maximum impact of originality.

Every young designer should…

Think BIG and be consistent in building your brand. And be nice to everyone — humbleness and manners are so important.

Saks is such a unique store because…

Every floor is a kind of heaven — whatever your passion from lingerie on Ten to fragrance on One.

Some of my all-time favorite designers include…

Geoffrey Beene — a marvelous man, America’s only real couturier. He was a true gentleman — and had the most fantastic house in Honolulu. I also loved what Stefano Pilati did at YSL — his shoes and bags became iconic in a relatively short space of time. Dries Van Noten, Rei Kawakubo, Raf Simons and Peter Dundas are all current favorites.

This summer, I will splurge on…

A black seersucker tuxedo — perfect for hot summer nights.

This summer I’m really looking forward to…

A posh wedding on the Italian island of Pantelleria — lots of friends, beautiful bride, amazing setting, glamorous people in gorgeous clothes and great food and wine.

The best fashion advice I’ve ever received was…

Only go sockless if and when you have brown feet.
