// Kingham will report to chief commercial officer Elizabeth von der Goltz
Matchesfashion has promoted its fashion & buying director Natalie Kingham to the newly created role of global fashion officer.
The fashion retailer said the new appointment will help build “deeper relationships with the world’s most discerning luxury customers”.
Kingham first joined Matchesfashion as international womenswear buyer in 2010.
She has helped expand the company’s portfolio to include new edits in homewares and lifestyle, vacation studio and fine jewellery.
“Throughout 2020 we have seen how our customers lifestyles have adapted to a changing world,” Kingham said.
“As we move into 2021, I am looking forward to evolving Matchesfashion’s proposition and continuing to showcase an innovative curation of designer talent.”
In her new role, Kingham will report to chief commercial officer Elizabeth von der Goltz.
Von der Goltz was also appointed to the newly-created role of chief commercial officer in November.
The appointment marked the fashion retailer’s third C-level hire in as many months.
Von der Goltz is currently at Net-a-Porter, where she has been global buying director for the last three years, and will leave the online fashion retailer next year to join Matchesfashion in February.
