Tapestry, Inc. (NYSE:TPR) (SEHK:6388), a leading New York-based house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle brands, today announced the appointment of Nicola Glass as Creative Director of Kate Spade. She is expected to join the company early in the new calendar year, and will 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. Ms. 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. Ms. Glass will be responsible for leading all creative aspects of the Kate Spade brand, including all product design, brand imagery and store environments.

“The appointment of Nicola Glass marks an important milestone in the next chapter of the Kate Spade brand,” said Victor Luis, Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry, Inc. “There are very few creative executives like her, who have both the talent to lead creative teams and the appreciation and understanding of how to scale a growing handbag and accessories-driven business. 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. Nicola fully understands the feminine, fun and fashionable style of Kate Spade and is excited to bring its distinctive style to global audiences. 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.”

Ms. 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. She leads a team including all accessory, hardware and technical design, and is responsible for sourcing and developing all leathers and fabrics. Ms. Glass has been with Michael Kors since 2004, contributing to the business and holding successively more senior roles over her 13-year tenure with the company. Prior to Michael Kors she worked at Gucci as an accessories designer. Ms. Glass holds a Masters of the Arts in Fashion Accessories from the Royal College of Art, London.

Victor Luis added, “Nicola’s sensitivity and appreciation of Kate Spade along with her leadership skills, and deep design experience, uniquely qualify her to provide creative direction for Kate Spade. I am confident that her expertise - grounded in accessories - will enable her to build upon the brand’s fun, feminine and fashionable positioning to create innovative product and brand imagery, delighting customers in a singularly Kate Spade way, full of color and playful sophistication.”

“I'm very honored to be joining Kate Spade as the new Creative Director,” said Ms. Glass. “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.” Ms. Glass will succeed Deborah Lloyd, who has been President and Chief Creative Officer of Kate Spade since November 2007. "We have great admiration for Deborah’s accomplishments and her vision and creative leadership have been instrumental to the growth of Kate Spade,” said Victor Luis. "We wish her every success in the future and look forward to welcoming Nicola.”
