Nick Wooster Named the Creative Director for JCPenney
Nick Wooster reclaims some fashion turf after sitting out for a year. Previously the men’s fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, the 51-year-old internet style icon and fashion veteran has also done consulting work for the likes of Thom Browne, Mac Cosmetics, Chaiken Clothing and Gilt Groupe. In a surprising recent development, American retailer JCPenney has enlisted the irrefutable taste maker in its fight to re-brand, setting the internet abuzz about what to expect from its newly appointed creative director for men’s clothing. While the news has produced mixed reviews, one thing is for certain — the Wooster is back.
