Matchesfashion fashion director Natalie Kingham steps down after 11 years
MATCHESFASHION global fashion director Natalie Kingham has stepped down after 11 years with the London-based luxury fashion retailer.
The moves comes amid a management restructure at the business, which included the recent departure of its CEO Ajay Kavan.
Kavan, a former Amazon executive, left in March after just a year in the role. To support the team in overseeing business activities, non-executive director Maureen Chiquet – a seasoned luxury professional and former global CEO at Chanel – took on the role of executive chairwoman.
It is said that Kingham's role will not be replaced but a search remains underway for a replacement for Kavan. Kingham was recently promoted to global fashion director, having previously been buying director.
At the end of November 2020, MATCHESFASHION announced the appointment of Elizabeth von der Goltz, the former global buying director of YOOX NET-A-PORTER Group (YNAP), as chief commercial officer.
