Tapestry, Inc., a leading New York-based house of luxury accessories and lifestyle brands, has announced that the company has appointed Nicola Glass as creative director, Kate Spade. She is expected to succeed Deborah Lloyd, the brand’s current creative director who, in the wake of the Tapestry, Inc. acquisition, made the decision to exit the brand in 2018.

Glass will ultimately report to the brand president and chief executive officer of Kate Spade, a role currently held by Tapestry, Inc.’s chief executive officer, Victor Luis, in an interim capacity. She will be responsible for leading all creative aspects of the Kate Spade brand, including all product design, brand imagery, and store environments.

Nicole Glass joins Kate Spade from Michael Kors where she currently holds the role of senior vice president of accessories design overseeing all design and development of Michael Kors collection and MICHAEL Michael Kors. Prior to Michael Kors, she worked at Gucci as an accessories designer. She holds a Masters of the Arts degree in fashion accessories from the Royal College of Art, London.

Victor Luis said, “The appointment of Nicola Glass marks an important milestone in the next chapter of the Kate Spade brand. We are extremely pleased that she will be leading the strong creative team already in place, while bringing her unique aesthetic and personal style to Kate Spade. Her depth and breadth of experience will be an invaluable asset to the business in general - and especially the design and brand teams - as we grow and develop the business globally.”

Glass said, “I’m very honoured to be joining Kate Spade as the new creative director. It is a brand I’ve long admired and I look forward to leading the team in this next chapter of Kate Spade’s evolution and growth.” (GK)
