Our new, more aspirational brand image reflects this shift and is empowering to our customers,” said Lisa Stanley, Vice President of Marketing for Torrid. “Our customers want real fashion that is flattering to their figures, and they want to be portrayed as they are: sexy, fearless and beautiful. The 'I am Torrid' campaign tells that story.”
