Asos’s head of womenswear buying for trend brands and branded accessories and beauty, Moriamo Oshodi, has left the company after 12 years to pursue personal interests away from the fashion industry.
Asos declined to comment on plans to replace Oshodi, or say if her duties will be absorbed into another role.
Oshodi joined the ecommerce giant in 2005 as a junior womenswear buyer. She worked across a number of core categories, including the development and launch of Asos’s own-label range. She started her career at department store chain House of Fraser.
Her departure follows that of product director Robert Bready, who resigned from the Asos board after seven years last week to pursue “fresh challenges”.
The move was announced as the etailer confirmed the much-anticipated appointment of former Marks & Spencer executive director Kate Bostock as executive director, product and trading. She will join the company and board in January.
A source close to Asos said Oshodi’s departure was unlikely to have been caused by Bostock’s appointment, but suggested she may have decided her arrival would limit future promotion.
