Jones Apparel Group Inc announced that Ted Kim has been appointed to the newly created position of Vice President (VP) Design, Anne Klein New York, effective February 18, 2008. In this role, Mr. Kim will oversee the design functions for Anne Klein New York Sportswear. He will report to Susie Rieland, Chief Merchandising Officer, Bridge and Better Sportswear. Mr. Kim's first line for Anne Klein New York Sportswear will be Spring 2009.

Mr. Kim brings a wealth of design talent and experience to Anne Klein, having most recently served as Senior Designer for the Michael Kors Collection. Prior to that, he worked at Donna Karan Signature and MaxMara Sportmax.

Susan Metzger, Chief Executive Officer, Women's Better Sportswear Division, said, "Ted truly understands the sophistication and fashion savvy of the Anne Klein New York woman. We believe his innovative designs and vision will flow through the Bridge line's many categories and bring even further success for this already powerful and iconic brand. Ted's appointment is consistent with our company-wide strategy to prioritize product and design for each of our core brands by bringing together the best talent in the industry."

Susie Rieland, Chief Merchandising Officer, Bridge and Better Sportswear, said, "Anne Klein New York is an important growth vehicle and a respected fashion resource that resonates extremely well with our retail customers. We are excited about all that we are doing at Anne Klein and are encouraged by the positive feedback our spring 2008 products are already receiving.

I have been following Ted's career and am excited to welcome a talented designer of his caliber and expertise to Anne Klein New York. I am confident that his vision will enhance the brand's already widespread appeal and I look forward to working closely with him as he applies his innovative perspective to Anne Klein New York's modern classics."
