Marc Cain appoints Katja Konradi to management
It has been three weeks since Karin Veit presented her last collection as creative director of Marc Cain, and the brand has just announced her successor. Katja Konradi will be the new head of the majority of the design of the premium label. Konradi joins from Boss, and will be responsible for product management, marketing, visual merchandising and interior design.
This means she will be responsible for other divisions that were previously under the supervision of founder and owner Helmut Schlotterer. Konradi will also join the brand’s executive committee.
“I am pleased that we have been able to recruit Katja Konradi as a new member of the management team for Marc Cain. With years of experience in a wide range of areas from design to product management, she knows the fashion market and is a professional in her field. Together, we will work on the further development of Marc Cain,” said Helmut Schlotterer in a statement.
Marc Cain has also further divided the design direction with Nadine Frichot taking responsibility for the Marc Cain Collections label while Katerina Grigoriadis remains Head of Design for the Sports collection.
Nadine Frichot has spent over 13 years with the company, working closely with Karin Veit, and will help ensure a smooth transition as an expert in Marc Cain’s design philosophy.
Katerina Grigoriadis has been described as an integral part of the creative team since March 2018, when she joined as Head of Design. She had previously worked at S. Oliver, Joop! Womenswear, Marc O'Polo and Strenesse.
The new management team will be tasked with coming up with innovation collections that can reinforce the brand’s DNA and its expansion.
