Matchesfashion has appointed Natalie Kingham to the newly-created role of global fashion officer.
In the new position, Kingham will define and lead the fashion point of view for Matchesfashion “to inspire deeper relationships with the world’s most discerning luxury customers”.
Kingham has worked at the London-based fashion retailer for a decade, joining as international womenswear buyer before being promoted to fashion and buying director.

“Throughout 2020 we have seen how our customers' lifestyles have adapted to a changing world,” Kingham said in a statement. “As we move into 2021, I am looking forward to evolving Matchesfashion’s proposition and continuing to showcase an innovative curation of designer talent.”
Kingham will report to chief commercial officer Elizabeth von der Goltz, who joins in February 2021.
