Co-founder, Chairman and President
Michael Niemtzow (Mike) is Co-Founder, Chairman & President of WindowsWear Inc. Mike is constantly looking for ways to reinvent and bring a new perspective to the things we experience and see in our everyday lives. This focus and passion has led to his success with companies across fashion and retail.
Born to a Parisian mother and having spent much of his childhood between France and the U.S., Mike gained an early appreciation for fashion and beauty. As an adult, he learned the importance of compelling content and believes that ‘content is king’ when it comes to monetizing the internet.
Admiring the window displays of Anthropologie in NYC on an early morning walk to the office, he realized that there is power and value in bringing fashion and art together to create amazing displays and retail environments. It was this realization that led him to create WindowsWear in 2012 with Jon Harari and Raul Tovar. Today, WindowsWear (www.windowswear.com) is the leading visual design resource used by top brands, designers, and fashion programs at schools worldwide.
Originally from the Washington D.C. area, Mike attended Tulane University and graduated cum laude. After four years serving as an officer in the U.S. Navy with two deployments to the Middle East, he attended NYU’s Stern School of Business and earned an MBA. He is a frequent speaker at FCS conferences nationwide and serves as an advisor on various academic fashion advisory boards including University of Nebraska, Berkeley College, Jefferson University, High Point University, and more. He lives in New York City with his wife and son.
