Fab, a vibrant community where people, tastemakers and brands come together to explore, create, buy and sell, announced today the formation of a creative director in residence program, and the appointment of Emily Holt, former Vogue fashion news editor, as the first to serve in this newly created position.
A new creative director will be appointed periodically, giving the Fab community a continuously fresh and distinct perspective.

The creative director will also develop a content strategy to tell the story behind the products on Fab.

“Emily is passionate about beautiful and meaningful products and the stories behind them, she brings the ability to curate and tell stories that connect with and inspire people, as well as the experience and understanding of fashion, culture and art that excites the Fab community. Fab is about engaging and inspiring people with the products they love, and delivering a wonderful customer experience. We know that Emily will bring a fresh approach and a sophisticated yet experimental and vibrant style to Fab. We are excited to see the transformation that Emily brings in the coming months, and about how this role evolves over time as we bring new creative directors in residence into Fab.”
