Harvey Nichols’ fashion director Paula Reed has left the business.
Reed has resigned from the luxury department store business a year into the job, which she joined from Grazia where she was style director.
It is not known what her next move is at this stage.
Chief executive Joseph Wan said he was “saddened” by the departure, adding that he wished her well for the future.
Reed said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the team at Harvey Nichols and now look forward to new and exciting opportunities.”
Her departure comes ahead of what is expected to be an imminent announcement about the successor of Wan, who is looking to retire towards the end of this year or beginning of next.
Frontrunners are thought to include former chief financial officer of Burberry Stacey Cartwright and ex-Richemont boss Marty Wikstrom.
