As a buyer, she’s one part product developer, one part negotiator, two parts handbag enthusiast, and three parts lover of cute and fluffy animals.
  • Heather Laing: Heather has been a part of Disney Product Design & Development for over 10 years and oversees all Softlines categories of business – including Fashion, Accessories, Home Infant, Pets and Stationery. Heather holds a degree in Fashion Design from Pratt Institute. Prior to joining Disney, she was at DLXSF and Betsey Johnson.
