The industry comings and goings keep on coming. And going. This one just in: Amanda Brooks has left her job as vice president and fashion director for Barneys New York, after a year or so at the company. She told WWD: “I have had the pleasure of working with an incredibly talented team but have resigned to temporarily relocate to England with my husband [British artist Christopher Brooks] and children in the interest of further pursuing other opportunities.” One such opportunity? Could be heading up Harvey Nichols’s buying team. Vogue UK points out that post has been available since Averyl Oates left the department store in December … but we’re not starting any rumors.
