As Karen Katz sees it, the time is right for her to retire, with the Neiman Marcus Group on “a much better trajectory” and someone with fresh perspectives taking the reins.
After an impressive 32-year career at the $4.7 billion Dallas-based luxury retailer, rising from an assistant manager of a small Neiman’s store in Houston to divisional merchandise manager, head of stores, head of e-commerce and ultimately president and ceo for the past seven years, her final day running the company is officially Sunday. The grand farewell will be tonight with hundreds of well-wishers expected at The Plaza for her retirement party, though she remains on the board indefinitely.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
