Hush appoints Melissa Dick as chief creative officer
Women’s fashion brand Hush has appointed Melissa Dick as its new chief creative officer.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the fashion retail and media sectors, Dick has joined the business from Coach where she was global head of creative strategy and studio. She has also previously held senior roles at Elle, Style.com, Dazed and ASOS.
In her new position, she will assume the creative leadership role from Hush’s founder Mandy Watkins who started the company with her husband Rupert Youngman in 2003. Dick will also support Watkins in her new brand ambassador role.
Dick said: “I’m excited to join Hush as chief creative officer. It’s a brand that has become much loved for bringing fashion and functionality together with a laid-back attitude that is extremely compelling for women today.
“I am sincerely grateful to Mandy, under whose unique creative leadership Hush has thrived, for trusting me with the future creative direction as we imagine the next chapter of hush’s story and set the direction for a bold and exciting future.”
During its most recent financial year, Hush posted revenues of almost £70 million.
Hush announced back in December that it had appointed Sarah Miles as chief executive. Miles joined the business last month from global beauty group Sephora.
Miles added: “I’m so pleased to welcome Melissa to Hush as the business’s new chief creative officer. Her decades of experience in building brand equity by leveraging content, culture and storytelling for well-known consumer brands will be of huge benefit to hush as it builds on the success delivered to date under Mandy’s creative leadership.”
