British high-street retailer Topshop has appointed Jacqui Markham as its new global design director.

The new executive, who had earlier worked for 14 years in the Sheffield-based firm before exiting to essay womenswear design director’s role at Asos.com, will now work alongside the purveyor’s creative director, Kate Phelan.

According to Vogue.com, the global director will supervise the company’s in-house design team of 60 people and would strengthen the brand’s position globally by focusing on design and product development areas.

Prior to joining Asos, Markham has worked on casual, formal, outerwear, jersey as well as Kate Moss collaboration projects of Topshop.

Emma Farrow was the former global design director of Topshop.

The multinational fashion retailer owns some 500 shops worldwide, of which about 300 are located in the UK, and online operations. Founded in 1964, the brand is a part of London-based Arcadia Group, which operates high-street clothiers like Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topman, Wallis and BHS. (PB)
