Walsh will be responsible for buying and product merchandising

Oasis buying director Sarah Welsh has been promoted to the newly-created role of product director, just-style has been told.

In this role, Welsh will be accountable for buying and product merchandising and will continue to work with the group's design director Clive Reeve.

Separately, the fashion retailer's merchandise director Richard Hindley is to leave at the end of March and will not be replaced, a spokesperson for Oasis told just-style. 

Last year, Aurora Fashions revealed a major restructure of its business, with plans to spin off the Oasis and Warehouse brands under a new company called Fresh Channel.

Coast, meanwhile, is in the process of becoming a standalone entity under CEO Kate Bostock - the former head of general merchandise at Marks & Spencer.
