Debbie Elmore has been named president of Liz Claiborne Inc.’s DKNY Jeans and DKNY Men division.

Elmore replaces Kevin Monogue, who has left the company to pursue other opportunities, according to Claiborne. Monogue had served as president since June 2007.

Elmore is a 30-year industry veteran who spent more than half of her career with Macy’s. She was most recently president of sales and design for the Ecko Red label at Paul Davril.

She’ll take over a brand that has been a strong performer for Claiborne and one that has joined in the celebrity cross-promotion frenzy of recent years. DKNY Jeans has partnered with Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz and actress Rachel Bilson to create lines over the last several years. Last fall saw the introduction of Femme for DKNY Jeans, a collaboration with singer and actress Hilary Duff.
