NEW YORK — Donna Karan International, which is taking back the DKNY Jeans and DKNY Active licenses from Liz Claiborne Inc., named Christa Michalaros president of DKNY Jeans, effective Nov. 7.
Currently the group president of Perry Ellis International Womenswear in charge of the Rafaella, C&C and Laundry brands, Michalaros was named to the position last January after PEI acquired Rafaella Apparel Group, where she was chief executive officer since 2006. Prior to that, Michalaros was president of the Tommy Hilfiger women’s wear division and, before, worked her way through the ranks of Liz Claiborne to president of the company’s casual group, where she was responsible for overseeing nearly $1 billion in business.
