Additionally, you will have the overall responsibility for the composition of and all design processes behind our 8 yearly MAIN collections along with various capsules within the categories Woven, Jersey and Tailoring.

You can expect approximately 25 days of travel per year.
We are looking for a Design Manager that has strong trend knowledge and lives and breathes fashion as well as recent trends and tendencies. Since you will be part of a dynamic environment, it is important that you have strong coordination skills and knows how to maintain an overview of the collection and spot potential challenges and flaws. Because of this, you need to thrive working with tight deadlines and in a dynamic environment characterised by no two days being the same and not always being able to plan ahead. Since you will have a lot of responsibility, it is important that you are an initiator and know how to transform creative ideas into action. You are determined and work independently, and you contribute positively to a strong collaboration both internally and externally in VERO MODA.
We look forward to hearing from you
