Luxury womenswear designer Issa London has appointed Angelina Ypma as chief executive.
Ypma replaces Anil Tanna, who is retiring after a year in the role.
Ypma, who starts on August 1, was previously managing director of Bulgari UK and Ireland and has held roles at designers including Chanel and Lanvin.
She said: “I relish the challenge of fully realising the potential of Issa into an international brand to match and surpass those that I have worked on in the past.”
Tanna joined the company last July when Camilla Al Fayed, daughter of Mohammed Al Fayed, took a controlling stake in the business. The label’s Brazilian designer Daniella Issa Helayel kept a 49% share in the brand and continues to run creative side of the company.
Issa London is well known for being a favourite label of the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, who wore the designer’s navy dress when she announced her engagement last year.
