Profile

Sr. Director, Merchandising - Women's Fashion (Value)
Overview
We’ve done our own thing since our very first pair of jeans. Born in the heart of Downtown LA, Company is one of the original denim pioneers, known for its cool yet comfortable denim with a nod to irreverence. We are part of the real LA—the country’s most diverse, surprising, and endlessly morphing city. Our brand is a love letter to the people, freedom, sunshine, smog—and most of all, the effortless cool that defines the city we call home.
We design jeans that remind you of epic times and give you confidence; jeans that make you look good, feel good, and do good. The choice to wear denim is a choice against the mainstream, it is a choice to be different, it is a choice to be yourself.
We believe in being a good neighbor and helping our community. We believe that cities should work for everyone and we are willing to work for it. We believe that places like DTLA should be accessible, humane, and vibrant. Our company is committed to bringing about positive development within our community.
