Jaeger appoints new head of womenswear designMonday, 26 November 2012
Premium high street fashion retailer Jaeger has announced
the appointment of Collette Brown as its new head of womenswear design.
Joining from Burberry, where she was senior designer of Burberry London, Brown will join the retailer on December 3, and will report to Shailina Parti, Jaeger’s brand director.
Brown brings with her a wealth of international design experience; prior to working at Burberry she held design roles at Bally, Dolce & Gabbana and Pringle.
Stewart Binnie, executive chairman of Jaeger, said: “We are delighted that Collette Brown is joining us from Burberry London as our new head of womenswear design, Collette’s experience will be extremely valuable to the business and we look forward to working closely with her on design and development of Jaeger’s womenswear collections.”
The appointment follows the recent strengthening of Jaeger’s management team, which last month included the appointment of Parti from Monsoon Accessorize and Binnie, who joined the business from Aurora Fashions.
