Perry Ellis International Inc. announced Denise Miller as President of Rafaella Sportswear effective immediately. Ms. Miller, an experienced fashion executive with an impressive background including positions with the Kellwood Corporation, and most recently with G-III Apparel where she served as President of Calvin Klein suits and suit separates, has joined the Company as part of Perry Ellis International’s strategic move to further strengthen Rafaella’s positioning among the leading women’s sportswear brands today.

Reporting to Vice-Chairman, President, and COO of Perry Ellis International Oscar Feldenkreis, Ms. Miller will be based out of the Company’s New York City office and will be responsible for all aspects of the Rafaella business including sales, design, merchandising and operations.

“We are pleased to welcome Denise to Perry Ellis International and are very excited about the breadth of experience in brand-building and leadership that she brings to the Company,” commented Oscar Feldenkreis.

“We would also like to thank Lana Todorovich for her leadership while serving as Interim President of the Rafaella business.” Ms. Todorovich will resume her role as President of Swim, Ladies Activewear and Shapewear.

The Company has also strengthened its design and merchandising functions within Rafaella by installing Veronica Davis who currently serves as EVP of Design for Laundry by Shelli Segal. She will oversee those functions for both businesses. Rafaella will continue to grow within the Perry Ellis International portfolio of brands, delivering great fashionable products and exploring new innovative avenues for marketing and sales, including its ecommerce site, which successfully launched within the past year.
