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 treats employees to lunch




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,” (dictionary.com)having 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.

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.”

"The 8th Wonder of the World"

"This inspiration is a combination of all my travels
around the world.  The theme is Mayan, and every structural element is a work of art, from the timber, to the stone, to the glass, to the thatched roofs.  It has acclimated into it's surroundings. Not a Hollywood, Beverly Hills house in the Bahamas, but a Bahamian house in the Bahamas, using all of the Bahamian type of talent and Bohemian type of structure" ... Peter Nygard.

Peter Nygard in 1967 busy launching NYGARD women’s fashion

Peter Nygard with American super model Beverly Peele
The year was 1967 and Beatlemania was taking over North America as people watched Ed Sullivan on their black and white TV on Sunday nights. The most popular movies were The Dirty Dozen, Cool Hand Luke and The Graduate. In our centennial year, Lester B. Pearson was Prime Minister of Canada. But to Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygård who was busy launching NYGÅRD women’s fashion that year, it seems like it was just yesterday.

“I feel like I just started; I can hardly wait to get to work every day,” says Peter Nygård. “Fifty years has flown by. It’s still just as challenging and exciting and new. I love creating and designing, and that is what drives me. This is not even a job; it’s my passion!”

NYGÅRD International is a privately-held fashion company founded in Winnipeg, where Peter Nygård spent his childhood, after his family emigrated from Helsinki, Finland.

Peter Nygard shows appreciation to employees


In a stirring address to his associates , Peter Nygård, Chairman of NYGÅRD International, revealed that 70 long-term personnel of the business would be given a $10,000 bonus. The statement happened after Nygård presented an impassioned message to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary in business.

 Throughout the speech, Nygård elaborated on his own rags-to-riches story, and the lengthy and rich background of the company and its emergence to prominence in the fashion industry. Nygård stitched a core message through all his stories of the company history – the company’s achievements have always been due to the fact of the dedication, ingenuity and loyalty of his personnel.

“The people here are what matters,” said Nygård. “You are the fabric of the company. You are family.”

Leading in to the statement of the bonuses, Nygård remembered a tale from his childhood.
“When I was a kid, my family was poor, and I remember being hungry a lot of the time. My best friend was a boy whose parents owned a restaurant. I remember being with him at his parents’ place, watching him make two pieces of toast. He buttered the first piece of toast, and ate it. Then he buttered the second piece, and ate that too. I thought for sure that second piece was my toast! That kid ate my piece of toast,” noted Nygård.

“So now,” he stated, looking to his long-time employees, “all you people who have been here 25 years or more, I am going to share with you my second piece of toast. You’re all getting a $10,000 piece of toast.” NYGÅRD personnel cheered in response to the information, and provided Nygård a standing ovation as he finished his address.

This demonstration of appreciation from the company’s chairman is not unheard of. Nygård provided $10,000 bonuses to long-time personnel of the organization in 2003, in celebration of the 35th anniversary of the business.
