Marks & Spencer appoints new Per Una head of design

Marks & Spencer has appointed Carole Boyes-Weston as head of design for its Per Una and Limited Collection womenswear ranges.

Boyes-Weston joins M&S from High Fashion UK and has previously worked at Next and Dewhirst. She will replace Helen Low, who is understood to be taking up a role at George, Asda’s clothing business.

The news follows last week’s announcement that Kate Bostock, M&S’s general merchandise executive director, will leave the retailer in the autumn. Bostock will be succeeded by John Dixon, head of M&S’s food business, who will be assisted in the role by Belinda Earl, the former chief executive of Jaeger and Debenhams.

Commenting on the appointment an M&S spokesperson 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."

Last week M&S reported a 5.1% decline in sales of general merchandise  in its first quarter.
