New York-based avant-garde designer Alexandre Plokhov is looking for an experienced women's Sales Account Executive with proven track record to spearhead wholesale women's market sales for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 season. This position will be for two months: full-time from September through the end of October/early November.
When I was reviewing my Fashion Week schedule last week, I was very excited to see Alexandre Plokhov's menswear and, more importantly, womenswear presentation listed on the calendar at Barneys New York. Mr. Plokhov was the genius behind Cloak, a menswear label with a cult following that mysteriously shut its doors one day, kind of like the fashion-equivalent of the Willy Wonka factory. After Cloak, Alexandre took the helm at Versace menswear working with Donatella for several years. Many moons ago (2008 maybe?), a mutual friend introduced me to Mr. Plokhov over oysters and champagne at SoHo institution Raoul's. While we were having dinner and mostly talking about our mutual affection for really loud bands, I got tipsy enough to ask him when he was going to design womenswear.
