Anne Klein, a division of Jones Apparel Group Inc has appointed Isabel Toledo as the new Creative Director of the Anne Klein Designer Collection.

Mrs. Toledo, the owner/designer for Toledo Studios, brings over 20 years of design experience and is regarded as one of today's most respected and influential designers in the fashion and visual arts arenas.

Peter Boneparth, President and Chief Executive Officer, Jones Apparel Group Inc said, "Isabel is one of the most dynamic talents in the industry and we are delighted to welcome her on board.

We are confident that this partnership will allow us to significantly expand the value-creation potential of the Anne Klein brand and enable us to reach an even broader cross-section of sophisticated, successful and fashion-savvy women.

Anne Klein has performed exceptionally well since we acquired it three years ago, and today is one of Jones Apparel's power brands. Under Isabel's creative vision and leadership, we now have a clear path forward to achieve our goal of securing Anne Klein's rightful place at the forefront of American fashion worldwide."

For more than 30 years, Anne Klein has been synonymous with American style, single-handedly defining how American sportswear is worn by most women today. Her innovative strategy, which introduced the concept of "mixed and matched" pieces such as constructed jackets, pants and other wardrobe staples, made her company the industry leader for decades.
