Sandra Campos has been appointed to the Board of Directors for fabric inc., becoming the company’s first Independent Director in the process.
The match took place in partnership with the Latino Corporate Directors Association (LCDA), who helped identify talented individuals read for Director roles.
With her brand and retail experience, Campos came out of the pack as among the most exceptionally qualified candidates.
Campos most recently served as CEO of Project Verte, and is the founder of Fashion Launchpad. Founded in June 2020, Fashion Launchpad is a premium subscription education platform that aims to provide accessibility to next generation skills training for women and diverse people of color with interest in fashion and retail.
During an exclusive 2021 interview with AL DÍA, Campos expressed how the pandemic played a large part in her decision to launch Fashion Launchpad.
As thousands of stores were closing, hundreds of brands, retailers and businesses were shutting down, tens of thousands of people were losing their jobs and companies were transforming to digital means, she felt an obligation to help people take control of their career trajectories.
“Fashion Launchpad was really about helping create master classes for retail and fashion professionals so that they can continue to learn and grow and expand beyond what they currently do,” said Campos at the time.
Campos is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about the fashion industry. She brings with her decades of retail and digital commerce experience to fabric’s Board, including her historic nearly three-year tenure as the first Latina and woman CEO of DvF (Diane von Furstenberg).
The first generation Mexican-American has also served as Co-President of Women’s Apparel Group at Centric Brands (Juicy Couture, Bebe, Buffalo, Tretorn, BCBG, and Hervé Legér); President of O Oscar, an Oscar de la Renta division; and Senior Vice President roles at Polo Ralph Laurent and Nautica, among other roles.
In a statement, fabric CEO Faisal Masud noted being thrilled to add Campos to its Board of Directors, “as she is one of us — an executive who has worked at the highest levels of many of the most iconic retail and fashion brands of our time,” he said.
“Sandra brings so much to the table — she is both a visionary and an operator and I expect that her insights and counsel will profoundly impact our strategies as we innovate on behalf of our customers,” Masud continued.
Campos sees this new board role as key to how digital commerce will likely look moving forward.
“Under the leadership of Faisal Masud, this company is well positioned to revolutionize the future of digital commerce,” wrote Campos in a Linkedin post.
The company is a headless commerce platform designed by experts and purpose-built for growth, and represents the modern commerce stack.
As an executive who has been a part of the commerce industry for more than two decades, Campos has seen its evolution over the years.
"Consumer expectations around the shopping experience continue to grow and they are actually getting more complex,” added Campos. “fabric’s technology provides retailers and brands maximum flexibility, scalability and customization to create exceptional shopping experiences.”
For Campos, it’s this level of technology access she wishes she had years ago.
In addition to her executive and board roles, Campos is also very involved in volunteer activities and always aims to give back to the community.
She is also a Board Member for Girls Inc., where she helps young girls learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face.
