M&S appoints new Per Una design chief

Marks & Spencer has drafted in design veteran Carole Boyes-Weston as head of design for womenswear brands Per Una and Limited Collection.

According to Retail Week, Boyes-Weston will replace Helen Low, who is understood to be joining supermarket fashion business George at Asda.

Boyes Weston, who is also a former tailoring buyer at Next, is currently an account director for clothing manufacturer Dewhirst Ltd but has more than 30 years design experience.

A Marks & Spencer spokeswoman said: “We’re delighted to confirm that Carole Boyes-Weston will be joining Marks & Spencer with immediate effect as head of design for Per Una and Limited Collection. Carole has a wealth of design experience and it’s a pleasure to welcome her to the team.”

The appointment is not thought to be part of the wider senior management restructure announced last week. Kate Bostock, general merchanse executive director, will leave this autumn and be replaced by food boss John Dixon and former Jarger chief executive Belinda Earl.

It came as the retailer reported a 6.8% decline in sales of general merchandise, mainly clothing, during its first quarter.
