(NEW YORK) My Wardrobe is shaking things up. The luxury e-tailer has plucked Harper's Bazaar senior fashion editor Carmen Borgonovo for a newly-created role as fashion director, effective January 2013. Along with her buying duties, Borgonovo will be in charge of sourcing designers and overseeing product development. She will replace buying and merchandising director Luisa De Paula, who's held the title for the past five years. "We are delighted to announce the appointment of Carmen as fashion director," said My Wardrobe CEO David Worby in a release. "Through Carmen's years of experience as an editor and with her excellent eye for style and design talent, I believe that she can bring a new direction for the my-wardrobe.com product offer." Prior to her stint at Harper's, Borgonovo served as accessories director at W and accessories editor at Vogue.
