From Sales Manager at Saks Fifth Avenue to Fashion Director at Instyle Germany, Jan Quammie’s career has been anything but predictable. Testimonial to her character and unshakable faith in doing what you love and loving what you do, Jan’s journey is an aspirational one.
Convert to the Skull cocktail ring in Onyx - one of her favourite Meadowlark pieces, Quammie’s relationship with Meadowlark began with a small stint working with our PR agency and as our sales agent in NYC.
Learning early on that she wanted to pursue a career in Fashion Buying, Jan started out in the corporate buying department at Saks. This led her onto roles at Elizabeth and James and Christian Dior. After a small bout of boredom she untypically accepted in a role in a huge local retailer in Shanghai, China, which eventually landed her a role at Net-a-Porter. After fleeing for romance to Europe, she now works as Fashion Director for Instyle Germany.
Throughout her career she has moved from NYC to Shanghai to Europe but has still remained incredibly grounded. The strong friendships she has built and styling jobs she landed along the way are testament to her 10 year career - self proclaimed as her highest potential - something we can definitely vouch for.
