Calvin Klein Women's Better Sportswear, a division of the Kellwood Company, under license from Calvin Klein Inc, named Chris Jackson Vice President of design.

Jackson most recently served as design director of DKNY women's collection, where he was responsible for the overall design direction for all categories of DKNY women's for nine years. Prior to DKNY, Jackson held major design posts at Nautica, French Connection, and Anne Klein.

Said Stephen L. Ruzow, President of the Calvin Klein Women's Better Sportswear division and EVP of Kellwood, "They are delighted to have Chris head- up the design team for the Calvin Klein Women's Better Sportswear line.

He understands this market and the essence of this consumer and what she is looking for. Chris and I have just returned from Shanghai and Hong Kong where he met with his production team. Chris has already started to develop the 2006 fall collection."

"To be able to work with Calvin Klein to create a better sportswear collection for the number one designer brand in the fashion industry is truly an exciting opportunity.

Interpreting the Calvin Klein look for this aspirational consumer will enable her to enjoy affordable luxury," added Jackson. Based in New York, Jackson reports to Ruzow.

Kellwood, a $2 billion marketer of apparel and consumer soft goods, specializes in branded as well as private label products, and markets to all channels of distribution with product specific to a particular channel.
