Brooks and Barneys
02 . 02 . 11
Last week, Barney’s named Amanda Cutter Brooks their new women’s fashion director. Sometimes she’s just seen as a socialite but Amanda was previously creative director for Tuleh and Hogan. She’s also contributed to Vogue and Men’s Vogue. She also wrote the great book, I Love Your Style. As my friend Jessica Gold pointed out, “she’s a good mix of uptown and downtown with a bit of quirk thrown in for good measure.” I always thought the previous women’s fashion director, Julie Gilhart, was a little too downtown for me so it will be interesting to see what Amanda does at Barney’s. Everyone needs a little change to shake things up from time to time including stores.

Ver exciting… I can’t wait to see what she’ll change. She’s a very elegant woman, so I can see she’ll bring some elegance to her work too.

My spidey senses tell me that she seems to like fur since she’s sporting it in all these shots!
She is fabulous will be watching.
I think Amanda was a fabulous choice! I ♥ Barneys already, but this may take it to a new level!
Also…love the Tory Burch preview. The rope sandals are calling my name!
I love Amandas,s style. Her book is really great because her sense of fasahion is original and avant gard. I think she is going to do a great job at Barneys
