US: Perry Ellis appoints Miller as Rafaella president
US apparel company Perry Ellis has appointed Denise Miller as president of Rafaella Sportswear.
The company described Miller as an "experienced fashion executive with an impressive background" having held positions within the Kellwood Corporation, and most recently with G-III Apparel where she served as president of Calvin Klein suits and suit separates.
The appointment is part of Perry Ellis's efforts to strengthen Rafaella's positioning among the leading women's sportswear brands.
Miller will be based in the company's New York City office, and will be responsible for all aspects of the Rafaella business, including sales, design, merchandising and operations.
"We are pleased to welcome Denise to Perry Ellis International and are very excited about the breadth of experience in brand-building and leadership that she brings to the company," commented Perry Ellis president and COO Oscar Feldenkreis. "We would also like to thank Lana Todorovich for her leadership while serving as interim president of the Rafaella business."
Todorovich will resume her role as president of swim, ladies' activewear and shapewear.
Rafaella Sportswear has also strengthened its design and merchandising functions by installing Veronica Davis, who is currently EVP of design for Laundry by Shelli Segal. She will oversee those functions for both brands.
