While the British were handing out awards, Andre Leon Talley, international editor-at-large of Numero (Russia), and member of the Board of Trustees, Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), has been named Artistic Director of Zappos Couture, Zappos’ digital luxury platform.
In his new role as Artistic Director, Mr. Talley will curate and cultivate the creative vision for the luxury retailer, working to shape its artistic inspiration and modernization across all platforms. This includes digital and editorial content creation as well as consulting on new brands.
Zappos Couture has enlisted Mr. Talley as part of a larger vision to continue expansion into the luxury market segment and the next phase of growth to develop a premiere destination for the luxury customer.
“The digital universe is a new exciting opportunity for me to reach a broad audience in terms of the global luxury market. I am very happy to join Zappos Couture as Artistic Director, and hopefully will create something unique, in terms of a web magazine within the Zappos Couture website, that conveys the immediacy and excitement of luxury retail products, season by season,” said Talley.
Established in 2004, Couture.Zappos.com, has become a leading destination in online couture apparel, footwear, handbag, accessories, fragrance and home decor sales by striving to provide ultra-stylish and brand conscious shoppers with the best possible service and selection.
