Most people talk about Peter J. Nygård, Chairman of NYGÅRD (International), in terms of his classic rags-to-riches story – the Finnish immigrants' son, who stitched up an empire out of women's clothing and is now the quintessential self-made man. This story overlooks another side of Peter Nygård – a hard driven man who has created a standard of excellence for the Canadian Women’s Fashion Industry, whose label is the #1 recognized label in the Canadian marketplace, and whose signature is recognized in fashion centres across the globe.

Peter Nygård’s success story began 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 - renaming it 'NYGÅRD' & turning it around from near bankruptcy into the bustling dynasty that it is today! The speed with which Nygård 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 Nygård says, "The only time you are working is when you wish you were doing something else".


Welcome to the exciting World of 
Peter Nygård!

Peter Nygard gives warm welcome to Retail Council Of Canada

Our free summer BBQ lunches in PARK 50 continue to be a hit with all of our NYGARD employees and last week, Wednesday, August 14, was no exception!

We also gave a warm welcome to our guests, Diane J. Brisebois, Karl Littler & John Graham from the Retail Council Of Canada (RCC), who joined us for a healthy lunch under the glorious Winnipeg sun and for a tour of Gallery 50 & our Inkster facilities.

I think we all did a full-on high five (in our heads, of course) when we heard Ms. Brisebois exclaim, "...I want to come back again!"

Peter Nygard and his experiences on the road to fame.

After graduating from the University of North Dakota in 1964, Peter Nygard wasted little time in putting his business degree to use.

He borrowed $8,000 in 1967, then used that money plus his savings to buy a 20-percent share of a small manufacturer of women’s apparel.

Within a few years, Nygard owned the company. He transformed it into Nygård International, a company that today boasts studios and stores throughout North America and Asia and is one of the largest women’s clothing manufacturers and suppliers in the world.

The son of Finnish immigrants of modest means, Nygard rose to the status of visionary in the clothing industry.

Throughout his career, Nygard seems to have followed a dictum that now graces his company’s website: “You don’t know how far you can go until you push the limits.”

So far, Nygard has gone strong for 50 years. In the wake of this 50-year professional anniversary, UND Today caught up with Nygard to talk about his alma mater and his experiences on the road to fame.

Peter Nygard’s contributions throughout The Bahamas

What invaluable gifts fashion mogul Peter Nygard gives to The Bahamas. It is exciting to see the realization of goals for one of the beneficiaries of Nygard’s many years of sponsorship.

Congratulations to Bahamian boxer Tureano Johnson on his recent win!

Bahamians everywhere are proud of Tureano’s accomplishments. This is a prime example of how The Bahamas has won big from a Nygard sponsorship that lasted years. Tureano has been on his journey for a while and has had some successes along the way, including participating in the 2008 Olympics. We celebrate with him as his hard work continues to pay off.

Amateur Boxing Federation of the Bahamas president Wilton “Wellington” Miller said he is extremely proud of Johnson and he owes a depth of gratitude to Nygård for his generosity in seeing that Johnson qualified for the Olympic games….

Miller along with other members of the boxing community thanks Nygård for his contribution to the development and growth of the sport of amateur boxing in the country.

It is these kinds of stories that warm our hearts and make us stop to reflect on the significance of Peter Nygard’s contributions throughout The Bahamas all these years. These are indeed invaluable gifts that cannot really be measured because they transform lives in such meaningful ways.

Peter Nygards business success based on independent thinking

Peter Nygard has achieved his success from going his own way, doing things differently, and following his gut instinct about what works and what doesn’t.

And though noted for his flashy nature and flamboyance, you’d be mistaken to judge him by this. Because, it really doesn’t tell the full story of Peter Nygard.

He shared his own view of his style with Executive Editor Michelle Markman in an article entitled “Peter the Great” (California Apparel News – August 1988): “Sure, I like the niceties of life and enjoy my flamboyant image. However, people must take me seriously.”

Another instance of his independent thinking and brilliance on display was highlighted in an article entitled “The Power of Peter Nygard” by Shelia Mudrick (The Fashion Network – December 1987). From her interview with Nygard, Mudrick writes,

“In the ‘60s and ‘70s when ‘youth was hot’, Nygard’s acute business sense told him to play the renegade. ‘Everybody said half the market was under 25 and went after it. I went after the other half [Peter Nygard].’

“His creative thinking took him in the opposite direction of his competitors on many levels.”

Peter Nygards Love Affair with the Bahamas

“This is a nice, happy place to be. I want to call this home.”

These are the words fashion mogul Peter Nygard used to describe how he felt about The Bahamas on his first visit. He later said about his decision to make it his home, “I had all of the choices in the world, but I chose The Bahamas. It is such a great country.”

He has now been a permanent resident of The Bahamas for over 40 years. The relationship between Nygard and Bahamians is one of a mutual admiration society.

This love affair between Peter Nygard and the Bahamian people is not surprising. Bahamians are aware of the fact that it is rare for any individual to share his wealth and fortune in the way that Nygard has over these 40 years.

Therefore, it’s only natural to fall in love with a man like Peter Nygard who piles generosity on top of generosity and never stops giving whether there is a need or simply a way to reward excellence in performance. He has left an indelible mark on the lives of many Bahamians.

As for Peter Nygard falling in love with The Bahamas, he couldn’t help himself: The mystical magic of the 700 jewels of the Bahamas called to him. Spellbound, he acquiesced and created his own island paradise on one of its most coveted gems.

Peter Nygard donates millions to Bahamians

In the words of former Bahamas Olympic Committee President Wellington Miller, Peter Nygard’s “contribution to the athletes is monumental.” Miller has said, “I don’t think any other private citizen has done what Peter has done.

Peter Nygard has been donating to various causes since he’s become a permanent resident in 1978.
While Peter Nygard’s millions in donations have helped many causes in The Bahamas, what he has given is so much more. He has transformed the lives of individuals. The impact of assistance to individuals with medical challenges is obvious—it lengthens life expectancy.

Bahamians are forever grateful to Peter Nygard, this Bahamian son, who truly made The Bahamas his adopted country and demonstrated his deep love for Bahamians and commitment to the country’s growth and development through his millions of dollars in giving.

How Peter Nygard got it right

Image result for Jones Communication Network’s (JCN) CEO, Wendall Jones

When asked—in a 50th Anniversary television interview—what he saw fifty years ago that made him approach the business differently from industry professionals, here’s what he told Jones Communication Network’s (JCN) CEO, Wendall Jones:

“One of my best assets has been that I have always been very visionary and could see the future. I saw in the 60s the advent of women wearing pants. She was wearing skirts—very little pants. I saw her wearing more pants.

“So, I did a survey to find out what kind of pants she would like to wear. I made the first pull on pants in the world out of double-knit wool and then for spring I made the first polyester pants, and they took off like wild fire. Women wanted to start wearing pants. No one was really doing that.

“When I came into the industry, I didn’t know anything about it, so I tried to figure it out. I saw the need for pants, and I decided to dominate the world with pants, and I have been doing it for 50 years.”

Peter Nygard gives millions to charity

Who gives away millions of dollars of their wealth? Very few individuals. However, one of the few is fashion mogul Peter Nygard.

Yes, he has given more than 20 million dollars to the eradication of cancer and to celebrating the lives of cancer survivors, but he has also given hundreds of thousands of dollars to causes in his second home country, The Bahamas.

In a Peter Nygard 50th Anniversary television interview with JCN’s CEO, Wendall Jones, on JCN in Nassau, Bahamas, Nygard was asked a series of questions about his success and his generosity.

Jones said to him, “You spent a considerable amount of money sponsoring various teams for several of the Olympic Games. You sponsored Boxing, Volleyball and all the rest of it. Why did you do it? Why did you think you had to do it?”

Nygard responded, “Because I could. Because I wanted to. Because it was a measurement of my success. My measurement of my success was not about how much money I made. My measurement was about how I spent that money, how I used that money.

On June 19th another beautiful day was celebrated with a free lunch for NYGARD employees.

Throughout June, July and August, Mr. Nygard is sponsoring BBQ lunches for all employees in the glorious PARK50. 

This lunch was fabulous in the outdoor summer lunchroom. 

The outdoor lunchroom is a fun and healthy alternative to the traditional lunchroom.

How Peter Nygard became a leader in the fashion industry

If you want to take your success to the next level, it requires doing more than what everyone else is doing.

Everyone knows that to be successful in business—or anything for that matter—it takes a vision, commitment, hard work and determination. These are only the basics. It takes these and that much more. Because, there’s success and there’s success.

In everything that fashion mogul Peter Nygard does, he begins with basic success and then ‘10-times’ it. It’s how he got the world to take notice and how he became a leader in the fashion industry.

Fashion industry writer, Jenny Park, stated in an article about how to be successful in the clothing industry that you have to not just be a designer but also an entrepreneur and you have to engage in continuous product development.

These are just two of the factors that Peter Nygard used to 10-times his multi-million-dollar success. He wears both his entrepreneur hat and his designer hat very well.

For Peter Nygard it was either sink or swim

To succeed in business, you have to start by getting rid of the myth that successful people are the most talented people. Though talent is defined as “a special natural ability or aptitude” or “capacity for achievement or success,” ( talent in a particular area can be developed or acquired.

What’s more important is your approach to business, as can be seen in fashion mogul Peter Nygard’s example.

When Nygard made an $8,000 investment in a clothing business, he was only twenty-six years old. He had a strong business sense, and in fact, had helped his previous employer grow their business substantially. However, Nygard didn’t know anything about the apparel business.

To complicate matters, his business partner and mentor died before being able to train him. For Peter Nygard, it was either sink or swim.

Nygard Slims model showcasing latest line in Hollywood

Legendary Hollywood figure Norby Walters celebrates the Oscars with a lavish party, and this 26th incarnation was the best yet, held at the grand International Ballroom at the Beverly Hilton.

Actors Gary Busey, Shirley Jones, Richard Dreyfus, Joseph Bologna, Christopher McDonald, Lou Ferrigno, and many more were in attendance along with Peter Nygard and the Nygard Slims models, showcasing their latest line – Nygard SLIMS LUXE.

This book was made to relive the fun and excitement of the Night of 100 Stars 2016!

Being realistic allowed Peter Nygard amazing accomplishments

Being realistic can be overrated in business. Just ask fashion mogul Peter Nygard. Being realistic was never a part of his thinking. That factor alone has allowed him to bring about amazing accomplishments in his life.

During the 2008 recession, Peter Nygard decided he would opt out. In fact, in 2009 he took out a billboard ad near his New York headquarters in Time Square. It read, “We decided not to join the recession. Our increase is over 25%”.

How is this possible in the midst of a recession? Well, simply put, you don’t focus on the problem. You insist on finding a solution.

In an article by an award-winning Finnish reporter, Rita Tainola, who interviewed Nygard, she wrote, “Business tycoon Peter Nygård has increased his net sales in the midst of the recession. He is, however, pessimistic about the worldwide recovery…. This businessman is doing fine while the rest of the world is coughing.”
