KELLWOOD TAPS WALDMAN: Kellwood Co. appointed Don Waldman president of Kellwood’s L.A. Intimates Group. The post had been vacant for four years. Waldman, 59, will report to Jim Mogan, president and chief executive officer of Kellwood’s Intimate Apparel Division. In his new role, Waldman will be responsible for the strategy, growth and development of the division, with a brand portfolio that includes the licensed Izod sleepwear and XOXO Intimates, Sag Harbor sleepwear and loungewear and lingerie bearing the Dentelle and L.A. Intimates labels. He will relocate to Los Angeles. Before joining Kellwood in 2003, Waldman was chief operating officer of Tarrant Apparel Group from 2000 to 2003. He served in several senior executive positions with Lucky Brand Dungarees from 1995 to 1999 and Title Jeans Wear Inc. from 1991 to 1995.
INTIMA DOES FIT: The Intima America Group will stage the next Intimate Apparel Salon at the new conference center of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York from Oct. 31 to Nov. 1. The fall edition will be changing its traditional three-day format to two days. A spokeswoman for the Messe Frankfurt-owned trade show, in its 14th year, said a more compact event will “provide exhibitors the benefit of focused time. Two full days will allow buyers to see the latest products, network and write orders with new and established companies.”
