We Love Your Style: Barneys Taps Amanda Brooks As New Fashion Director
Shake ups are continuing at Barneys New York
, as author and advertising maven Amanda Brooks will be heading up the role of the Women's Fashion Director, Vice President
. The reshuffling of the storied retailer started in November when Gucci's Daniella Vitale came in as Executive Vice-President, and rumors even swirled that she'd bring on Vogue's

She's most definitely a well-heeled and refined choice—she graduated from society mainstays like Horace Mann and Brown, did time at William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, and served as creative director of the now-defunct, Upper-East chic Tuleh label.
