“The market has evolved, and just as we move with fashion and color trends, it was time to take a fresh look and approach to our fabric business, the team, and how we better serve our customers,” said Yu. “We are excited to add Anastasia’s unique perspective and expertise to complement our experienced in-house design team.”
