Barneys New York is losing its vice president and fashion director Amanda Brooks, who just resigned to move to England with her British husband and kids. Though she had been at her post for about a year, Brooks was instrumental energizing the department store’s creative positioning and growth.
“To be the fashion director of a store with such a unique and inspiring vision has always been a dream job,” Brooks said. “I have had the pleasure of working with an incredibly talented team but have resigned to temporarily relocate to England with my husband and children in the interest of further pursuing other opportunities. It is a personal decision and I will miss working with the Barneys team.”
Barneys has no plans of immediately replacing Brooks.
