Collinson confirmed to WWD that she has been named the French fashion house's general merchandise manager for the U.S. She started Wednesday and reports to Karen Watkins, executive vice president of Christian Dior Inc.

Considered a strong merchant, Collinson is best known for her long stint as head of women's at Barneys New York, which she exited following a management shakeup in 2010 when former Gucci chief executive Mark Lee became the retailer's chief executive officer.
