Mary Katrantzou Names New CEO
Former executive vice president of Thom Browne, Trino Verkade, has just been brought on as CEO of British label Mary Katrantzou. Some of the funding to bring Verkade on board came from Katrantzou's impressive Vogue Fashion Fund winnings. "It is about getting better before we go bigger," Verkade told the Business of Fashion, adding that it was Katrantzou's "fearlessness" that attracted her to the brand. "Right now, it is about looking at everything we can do to be a better partner with our stores, to give something better to our customers, building the same amazing relationships we have with our retailers with the mills and suppliers."
