Nicole Naccarella is Myer’s Group General Manager for Women’s Fashion and, aside from being incredibly chic, is an absolute walking wealth of fashion knowledge. With over thirty years experience in the industry under her belt, Nicole is our go-to for anything fashion and style related. We decided to pick her brain to find out about her personal style and get her take on the season ahead.
So – what exactly does a Group General Manager for Women’s Fashion do? Well, Nicole oversees the buying & planning of all women’s fashion departments and develops wider business strategies to ensure that Myer always offers the very best in women’s fashion from local and international designers. When she’s not jet-setting across the globe for international fashion weeks & buying trips, she’s based here in our Melbourne offices. We managed to catch up with her for a quick 5 questions in 5 minutes…
