NEW YORK — Melissa Parker-Lilly, currently president of the Italian luxury knit firm Agnona, has been named president of the Donna Karan New York Collection brand.
She is the latest key executive to join the Donna Karan team since Fred Wilson took over as chief executive in September and moved to restructure the company by brand, rather than between women’s and men’s divisions. Her appointment follows those of Mary Wang as president of DKNY and Carol Sharpe as president of retail.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
