Harrods head of womenswear and childrenswear buying, Maria Milano has reportedly announced her resignation and will be leaving the business later this year.
Milano joined the company in 2013 as head of editorial and content for the retailer’s website, before working her way up to general merchandising manager, womenswear, in 2017.
She then became head of buying, womenswear and childrenswear last year.
Before joining Harrods, Milano worked as an online editor at fashion magazine InStyle and executive editor at publishing house Condé Nast.
She will be announcing her new role later this year, Drapers reported.
“Over the next 24 months, our womenswear designer floor will continue to be transformed as part of the Harrods masterplan redevelopment project, bringing together our unrivalled international brand portfolio in redefined sleek new spaces,” Harrods fashion director, Lydia King said.
“I want to thank Maria for her valuable contribution to the business and wish her the very best for the future.
“This is a hugely exciting time for fashion at Harrods, as we welcome long-awaited collections, exclusive pop-ups and exceptional new designers to the store.”
