Exclusive: Footasylum appoints new head of buying

Young fashion footwear retailer Footasylum has appointed former JD Sports buying director Steve Spellacy as head of buying.

Spellacy replaces co-founder and buying director Steve Makin, who stepped down from his position in November after seven years at the retailer.

In an email seen by Drapers, Footasylum chief executive John Wardle said: “Steve [Spellacy] has a strong pedigree in buying and retail, previously holding senior buying roles in other retailers, and also spending a number of years on the wholesale side of the fence. He is focused on continuing and building on the good work done so far, and will be an integral part of the business moving forward.”

Spellacy is also the owner of design, sourcing, sales and distribution company Bed Pennie, which works with brands including Superdry and Duck & Cover.

Spellacy will work closely alongside Footasylum co-founder David Makin to “ensure that Footasylum’s reputation continues to go from strength to strength”.
