US apparel retailer Kate Spade & Company has named Emilia Fabricant as president of the North America region effective June 29, 2015.

“In this role, Fabricant will oversee the Company's North America business, with responsibilities across all distribution channels, and will report to CEO Craig Leavitt,” Kate Spade said in a press release.

Craig Leavitt said, "Emilia's combination of experience with luxury retailers, mall-based retailers and online businesses makes her an excellent fit for our team.”

“She will bring valuable leadership and perspective as we continue to focus on our channel-agnostic approach and on fulfilling our lifestyle vision to drive profitability," Leavitt added.

"As our business continues to expand, Emilia will play a central role in overseeing all aspects of our distribution channels in North America," he observed.

Most recently, Emilia Fabricant served as executive vice president of Aeropostale, Inc. overseeing design and merchandising across all divisions, and serving as president of GoJane.com.

Prior to that, she served as president of Bebe Stores, Inc., as well as president and chief merchandising officer of Charlotte Russe, Inc.

Fabricant also founded Cadeau Maternity, and served as president and chief merchandising officer of eStyle, Inc. following its acquisition of Cadeau.

She began her merchandising career with Barneys New York, where she served in a number of management roles, culminating with senior vice president, Women's Co Op and Outlet Division.

Fabricant said, "Over the past several years, I have watched Kate Spade build incredible momentum in North America and grow consumer appeal and demand across product categories.”

“I am eager to apply my experience in brand management and merchandising to Kate Spade & Company and look forward to working with its talented, innovative team," she too added.

Kate Spade & Company designs and markets accessories and apparel principally under two global, multichannel lifestyle brands; kate spade new york and Jack Spade.

The Company also owns the Adelington Design Group, a private brand jewelry design and development group that markets brands through department stores.

The Company also has a license for the Liz Claiborne New York brand, available at QVC, and Lizwear, which is distributed through the club store channel. (AR)
