US: Kymberly Gold Lubell to leave True Religion
Kymberly Gold Lubell, vice president of designer jeans and casual clothing maker True Religion Apparel Inc, and wife of the company's founder, is leaving to pursue personal interests.
Kym joined the company in January 2004 and worked closely in product design with Jeffrey Lubell, who is True Religion's chairman of the board and chief executive officer.
In a statement Lubell noted that recent hirings to the design team, including fashion expert Zihaad Wells, women's designer Caius Olowu, and head of merchandising Rodney Hutton, "have significantly bolstered our creative talent base [and] will help drive the evolution of our products from predominantly premium denim to our long-term goal of a targeted 50/50 sportswear and denim product mix."
