Gap Inc., in what’s been an ongoing, aggressive hunt for talent, has tapped one of its alumni, Tracy Gardner, to work at Gap’s Global Creative Center in New York.
Beginning Monday, Gardner will be working alongside Pam Wallack, executive vice president, and the rest of the team, in an effort to improve the product and help turn around the retailer’s sagging women’s business. “She is joining us in an advisory capacity and will provide oversight and guidance on the development of our women’s product,” said Gap spokeswoman Louise Callagy. “They will begin working on developing holiday product for 2012.”
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
