Retail Industry Veteran Will Drive New Wave of Growth for Forever 21-Backed Premium Fashion Subscription Brand

LOS ANGELES - May 22, 2019 - Californer -- DAILYLOOK (http://dailylook.com/), a premium styling experience and fashion subscription service, has announced Chris Lepold as the new Chief Merchandising Officer. Lepold brings over 30 years of experience in the retail industry and is adept at building relationships while leveraging business savvy and vendor knowledge. In her new role, Lepold will lead the buying and planning team, oversee strategy and drive overall brand growth.

Over the last year, DAILYLOOK has thrived as it received an $8 million investment from Forever 21, announced its first ever Fashion Director and revealed a fashion stylist page to highlight its unwavering commitment to transparency and an authentic, personal touch. As the brand continued to experience strong conversion rates with customers purchasing 80% of the time, as 8 out of 10 client boxes result in a satisfied purchase, CEO and founder Brian Ree decided to recruit a lifelong merchant to continue the growth trajectory.

Lepold is an industry powerhouse who has deep experience in all aspects of the retail business, both online and in stores. She most recently served as the Senior Vice President and National Merchandise Manager of HauteLook/ NordstromRack.com, where she played an instrumental role in scaling the flash-sale HauteLook business from early growth to the Nordstrom acquisition at rapid scale. Prior to HauteLook/ NordstromRack.com, Lepold built deep experience in traditional retail and merchandising leadership roles including Macy's West and Loehmann's, where she was recruited to launch the company's first west coast office.  During this time, e-commerce and a new way to shop for clothes was beginning to take off.  She began evolving traditional business tactics and models to meet new consumer habits which caught the attention of HauteLook in its startup phase.
