Indie etail portal Farfetch has appointed Shopbop communications boss Stephanie Horton as chief marketing officer.

We opened a New York office this month, brought in Gabrielle de Papp, formerly vice president of corporate public relations from Neiman Marcus, and now we are thrilled to announce that Stephanie Horton is joining the company. Stephanie’s expertise merges business with creativity. She is renowned for her ability to make big ideas a reality.”
