Debenhams’ Karen Peacock flies to M&S

Debenhams’ long-serving womenswear design director Karen Peacock is to join Marks & Spencer in July.

Peacock, who has been at Debenhams for 10 years and was responsible for introducing H! by Henry Holland to the Designers at Debenhams range and creating the Edition concept, will be replaced by Lisa Marie Peacock, who covered her role while she was on maternity leave.

Peacock will join Marks & Spencer as head of design for footwear and accessories, Autograph, Classics and the Indigo Collection.

Prior to Debenhams, Peacock held positions as a designer in the UK and the US, and previously worked for Marks & Spencer as an accessories designer.

A Marks & Spencer spokesman said: “Karen will help us to continue to deliver the key trends for our customers.”

A spokesman for Debenhams said: “We would like to thank Karen for her hard work and wish her well with her new role. Lisa Marie brings with her a wealth of fashion expertise and we are confident that our design credentials will go from strength to strength under her direction.”
