Jigsaw has appointed former Jaeger brand director Shailina Parti as its first buying and merchandising director.
In a newly created role, which she started this week, Parti will work closely with chief operating officer Richard Gilmore and product director Barbara Horspool.
Chief executive Peter Ruis told Drapers: “Shailina brings a wealth of commercial buying and sourcing experience gained at her previous roles with Jaeger and Monsoon, and will be instrumental in our strategy to both re-establish Jigsaw as the UK’s foremost premium high street brand and implement plans for further international expansion.”
Parti has spent most of her working life at Jaeger, having notched up 22 years in her first stint before leaving in 2010 to join Monsoon Accessorize as design and buying director.
She rejoined Jaeger as brand director in 2012.
