“FIT” IS MORE THAN WHAT LOOKS GOOD. It needs to feel good, too. Fit is understanding what makes a woman tick: her multi-layered, inner fire and natural desire to share her best self.
It’s a POV we own 100% – and a benchmark for those we need on our team.
“Fit” might not come across on a job description. But candidates who “fit” feel strongly connected with all the things a woman values, believes in, supports, defends, embraces, loves. They’re relationship builders, team players, believers in fashion first and people always.
Those “one in a million” candidates are the ones we covet. Because they’re capable of shaping an experience that will make someone’s day; inspire her to look, feel and be her best. They make it happen. Because they get it. Because they fit.
