Premium British retailer Jaeger has announced two senior appointments to its design team. Jsen Wintle has been named as creative director for menswear after joining the brand in September, while Sheila McKain-Waid joins as creative director for the brand’s womenswear. She will join the team next month.
Wintle will report to director of menswear and e-commerce Caroline Lee and McKain-Waid will report to Liza Webb, director of womenswear.
Prior to joining Jaeger, Wintle launched his eponymous menswear label in 2004 and has shown his collection at Fashion Weeks in London and Paris. Sheila McKain-Waid graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York before going on to work at Donna Karan, Halston and Oscar De La Renta.
