Founded in 1998 in Paris, Anne Willi is an independent brand that does not belong to any group. The French designer’s products are manufactured exclusively in Europe and all members of our team are carefully chosen to join a veritable family of employees.
The Anne Willi Fashion studio is located in Paris and we are currently seeking an extremely responsible store manager in New York for the March 2018 opening of our second Brooklyn store located in Williamsburg.
We are looking for an experienced person who would love the challenge of launching our line in the vibrant Williamsburg neighborhood. A background in art would be appreciated, as we also plan to stage exhibitions and art openings in our large new space. You are someone who loves helping women to feel good about themselves – and you will have the knowledge to do this, so that each client will return. The ability to build a faithful clientele will be paramount. You will be committed to promoting the culture of the brand internally and externally, and feel at ease explaining the style, quality and fabrication of our goods. You will ensure that the store atmosphere always upholds our brand image and perfectly shows off our collection. You will be responsible for ensuring the high standards of our window displays, and you will always be looking for new ideas to show the collection off in the best possible way.
You will be part of a team of 3 who will keep the store open 7 days a week, and it will also be your responsibility to identify, attract, recruit, develop and retain a talented sales staff, while working in collaboration with our existing Brooklyn store (at 362 Atlantic Avenue). You will liaise with the studio in Paris and develop sales.
It is most important that you love our brand…that the Anne Willi collection corresponds to your style! You have a highly developed fashion sense and are motivated to represent the brand. You love people and love to provide advice to them, and you are well organized and detail-oriented. You are able to take initiatives and nurture a sense of urgency in your work. You like to work as part of a small team and within a company of human scale.
