A PASSION FOR FASHION
Our passion for fashion inspires sophisticated collections featuring a perfect fit and beautiful workmanship, paired with trademark elegance and attention to detail. We combine contemporary zeitgeist with classic chic in looks that interpret the latest trends and offer the ideal outfit for every occasion. Our goal with every new collection is to underscore and enhance the personality and femininity of today’s modern-minded woman.
Our clients equate ESCADA with sophisticated, superior product quality. This high standard permeates our organization and shapes our philosophy. It applies to our impeccable finishing and the innovative techniques we use to craft our sumptuous, exclusive materials. It also applies to the expertise and professional dedication of our employees: the people who define and refine the entire product development chain and constantly seek to optimize our product and business processes. We take our customers' wishes very much to heart and hope to always provide the best possible service. Across the board, throughout our organization, increasing customer satisfaction is our goal.
AN INTERNATIONAL PRESENCE
ESCADA is a premier global player in the fashion segment. We sell our collections in more than 80 countries around the world and employ some 2,200 men and women. Leading Italian and French textile manufacturers, weavers and spinning mills as well as Europe’s most innovative printers work for our organization, providing the exclusive patterns, fabrics and colors that distinguish the ESCADA collections. The workforce at our Munich headquarters is comprised of employees from 30 different countries who cooperate closely with our international subsidiaries. Understanding the unique fashion needs and expectations of a global clientele is a key pillar of our corporate philosophy – and the reason why we so wholeheartedly embrace individuality and diversity.
Particularly in our fast-paced industry, it is essential to remain up-to-the-minute and in touch with the market, i.e. the customer. This is why we focus on teamwork and foster the regular interchange of information worldwide, helping to create a work environment that is shaped by partnership and dialog. Our talented specialists collaborate interdepartmentally, bridging hierarchies and transcending borders. They enjoy ample scope for creativity and responsibility. To us, teamwork also means mutual support, a spirit of cooperation and an allocation of tasks that is fine-tuned to each person’s special skills. This provides the platform from which we collectively pursue our ambitious goals for a successful future.
TRAINING & CAREERS
Employees who stand out by virtue of their commitment and achievements are promoted and assigned more responsibility. After all, people who accomplish a great deal want to make a difference, too. When vested with sufficient responsibility and decision-making freedom, our staff can demonstrate their entrepreneurial prowess anew each and every day. And they can take advantage of manifold opportunities for advancement, be it on-the-job learning, challenging new roles, interdepartmental projects, dual training programs in marketing and retail, or external opportunities. ESCADA places a premium on human resource development from within its own ranks, which is why we not only expect a lot from our employees, but also do a lot for them in return.
Corporate culture is a matter of give and take. The nature of our industry means that the entire product development cycle – like the subsequent marketing and logistics operations – is subject to seasonal peaks that demand considerable added effort. But not at the expense of employees' enjoyment and job satisfaction. ESCADA rewards its staff with a range of programs and joint activities. Attractive benefits in the areas of healthcare, salaries and work-family balance round out the employment picture. Our passion for fashion and a creative, dynamic atmosphere make ESCADA a fun place to work.
