As a part of della terra, Jassem will implement an innovative program allowing the retail industry to flourish in a sustainable direction. In a move away from traditional retail experiences, della terra will partner with stores by providing products in each style and size for consumers to try on and experience. Instead of holding stock, the companies will be able to create a more sustainable shopping experience where consumers will receive their orders directly from the brand, eliminating the cost that comes with carrying inventory. With the retailer obtaining 50% of the sale as a risk-free incentive, della terra hopes to encourage more brands to revitalize their efforts for sustainability and encourage both consumers and retailers to become more educated in eco-friendly shopping and living.

Jassem is no stranger to novel ideas in the retail industry. During his 30 years with David's Shoes, Jassem was an early adapter to computerized POS systems, digital shopping experiences and working with accessible and sustainable brands.

"We are thrilled to have David Jassem join our company as a leader in innovative retail strategy and a visionary for the future of fashion businesses," says Emily Landsman, founder and CEO of della terra. "We firmly believe that in order to make a significant difference in our impact on this planet, we need to partner with other businesses who can share in our sustainable practices. It is not enough that della terra has been sustainable from its very inception, our aim is to roll out a partnership strategy that empowers ours and other businesses to mitigate environmental impact while servicing the contemporary fashion landscape."

"I am very excited to join Emily and her team and bring sustainability to fashion," says David Jassem. "Producing and selling fashion in a sustainable model is and must be the future of our industry. I look forward to setting a new standard on how the business of fashion can be done in an eco-friendly manner."
