During his time as CEO, DeFeo led the company to success as it embraced the use of technology and various clienteling tools. These enabled Stylists to work with their Clients virtually using a state-of-the-art fitting technology app on their phones, a 3D garment configuration tool, visual closets and virtual calls, paving a new way for Clients to purchase custom clothing through meeting with their personal Stylists either virtually or in person, whichever they preferred. Under DeFeo’s leadership, the brand also expanded its ever-popular range of custom casual clothing, proving to be a winner when the hybrid work model was adopted everywhere.
