Calvin Klein, under parent company PVH Corp., has appointed Jessica Lomax as the executive vice president, global head of design, PVH announced Wednesday.
The brand began its search for a global head of design in late 2018, after Raf Simons left his role as chief creative officer months before his three-year contract was up.
Lomax joins Calvin Klein from Nike, where she is currently senior creative director, women’s sportswear apparel.
“Under her creative design leadership and through her collaborative and innovative approach, I am extremely confident that our product direction will continue to become more consumer-centric, sustainable, and inclusive,” Calvin Klein chief executive Cheryl Abel-Hodges said in a statement.
Lomax’ role at Calvin Klein will be effective Dec. 9. In this position, she will oversee Calvin Klein’s creative direction and design strategy across the business, “with a focus on essential hero product,” the company said.
