M&S appoints new womenswear design director

Marks & Spencer has promoted Queralt Ferrer, former head of design for its Autograph and Limited ranges, to the newly created role of womenswear, lingerie and beauty design director.

Ferrer joined M&S from Zara and Massimo Dutti owner Inditex in 2003.

In her new role, she will take on responsibility for M&S’s Best of British collection and its Classics range and report directly into recently appointed general merchandise boss Steve Rowe.

M&S’s womenswear director Frances Russell left the business in August, less than a month after Rowe took over the general merchandise beat from John Dixon. Womenswear was subsequently added to beauty and lingerie director Jo Jenkins’ role.

Jenkins and Ferrer will work alongside each other, with Jenkins responsible for trading across the categories and Ferrer for design. Belinda Earl remains as M&S’s style director.

A spokesperson for M&S said: “We are pleased to promote Queralt Ferrer to the position of design director, womenswear, lingerie and beauty. The appointment supports our commitment to improving product style and is in line with our recent move to align accountability for the product areas designed for our female customers.”
