John Lewis hires Warehouse's Lustman

Former Warehouse managing director Meg Lustman has resurfaced at John Lewis as fashion buying director.

Lustman, who stepped down from her role at the Aurora Fashions business in February, is taking on a nine-month contract at the department store, which will begin next month.

Lustman will be responsible for overseeing all of John Lewis’ fashion offer, including recently launched own brand Kin and the successful Somerset by Alice Temperley range.

She will report into newly promoted buying and brand director Paula Nickolds, who replaced Peter Ruis when he left for Jigsaw in September.

Nickolds said: “Meg has worked with many great British brands and supported them in their strategy and growth and I am very much looking forward to working with her on our fashion plans for the business over the next nine months.

Lustman added: “John Lewis is a fabulous brand and to be given the opportunity to work with such a strong and credible business and develop ways of continuing to delight and inspire its customers is an exciting prospect.”

John Lewis has also promoted Christine Kasoulis from brand development director to take on Nickolds’ previous role as home buying director.
