MatchesFashion appoints executive creative director
Luxury fashion platform MatchesFashion has named John Mooney as its executive creative director, as chief executive Nick Beighton strengthens his executive team.
In a statement, MatchesFashion said that Mooney would be responsible for all creative output across the organisation across all touch points.
Mooney joins the business from Asos, where he served as global brand creative director.
