In addition to beauty, Farfetch will also add kids as a new category. Shop Stella McCartney Kids, Burberry Kids, Roksanda, and more on March 1st.

"Anya will be instrumental in defining the style and direction of our site’s content; as well as developing key collaborations with photographers, designers and brands."
