Sarah Rutson has left her position as vice-president of global buying at Net-a-Porter after two years.
Rutson joined the luxury womenswear etailer in December 2014 from Hong Kong-based department store chain Lane Crawford, where she was fashion director for 21 years.
In the newly created role at Net-a-Porter, she was tasked with expanding the designers and brands available on the site.
Announcing her departure on Instagram, she said: “It’s been an amazing two years and a long week of goodbyes here. But it’s really time for my family and daughter to be my front row for now.”
Drapers understands Rutson is on garden leave for six months and has another role lined up.
Net-a-Porter said: ”We would like to thank Sarah for the passion and dedication she has shown to Net-a-Porter. During her tenure, our product selection has remained a key differentiator, providing our global customers with the best curated edit of the season’s most covetable collections.
“She leaves behind a very talented buying team who will continue to deliver exciting growth for the business.”
The business said incoming managing director Matthew Woolsey, who is due to join later this month, will appoint a successor for Rutson.
