Rickie De Sole joins Nordstrom in newly created role
Nordstrom announced on Tuesday that Vogue veteran Rickie De Sole has joined the company as women's designer fashion and editorial director.
In this newly created role, De Sole will work “cross-functionally across different facets of the women's designer division, bringing a heightened point of view to the merchandising offering to deliver against business goals and growth plans,” the Seattle-based company said.
Moreover, she will develop the women's designer editorial plan, create engaging content, act as a spokesperson, and build a heightened customer community. De Sole will report to Red Godfrey, Nordstrom’s vice president and creative director.
"We're super excited for Rickie to join the team here at Nordstrom. Rickie has a unique perspective on what a modern fashion and luxury customer is looking for and how they engage with product," said Sam Lobban, Nordstrom SVP, designer and new concepts.
"We believe her point of view and experience will add something very special to our business for our customers, brand partners and the Nordstrom team at large.”
Most recently, De Sole was the executive fashion director at Vogue, where she supported business initiatives and content across digital, print and social platforms as well as editorial collaborations and e-commerce.
Prior to Vogue, she was the fashion director at W Magazine, accessories director at Vogue Magazine and worked in-house at Prada. De Sole has equally served on the boards of Rent the Runway and Thom Browne.
"It is a privilege to be joining Nordstrom and the exceptional leadership team in this newly created role, said De Sole.
"I am excited for the opportunity to work at the leading fashion retailer known for its unparalleled customer service and look forward to partnering with the best designers in the world to create exciting and unique moments both online and in its brick-and-mortar stores."
