She’s only been on the job since January 2011, but Amanda Brooks is leaving Barneys in search of a new gig.

The fashion director explained that while working for the company was a great experience, it’s time for her to move on.

Amanda began, “To be the fashion director of a store with such a unique and inspiring vision has always been a dream job.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with an incredibly talented team but have resigned to temporarily relocate to England with my husband and children in the interest of further pursuing other opportunities. It is a personal decision and I will miss working with the Barneys team.”

As for her successor, an industry source reported, “Barneys is not planning to immediately replace Brooks.”
