Peter Sachse, chief stores officer of Macy’s, has joined the board of Charitybuzz. Sachse also serves as a member of the board of governors of the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund and as a director of XO Group Inc. Charitybuzz has raised more than $60 million for nonprofits through online charity auctions with celebrities and brands. Over the past year, Charitybuzz.com worked with Tory Burch, John Varvatos, Donna Karan, Feed, CFDA, Ralph Lauren, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s among other companies. Sachse will advise the company as it pursues larger-scale corporate philanthropy partnerships.
“By aligning pop culture, technology and philanthropy, Charitybuzz has transformed giving into a fun, easy and socially relevant activity,” said Sachse, who became Macy’s chief stores officer last February after serving as chief marketing officer since May 2007 and chairman of macys.com since April 2006. Sachse is responsible for stores, the regional and district stores organization and visual merchandising, and the omni-channel strategy.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
