Marc Cain names new design director
Katja Foos has been named as the new director of design at Marc Cain. The 52-year-old designer will join the German luxury company in January 2020, and will focus on evolving the labels of the premium brand “in the spirit of the current zeitgeist”. She will report directly to Frank Rheinboldt, managing director of sales, marketing and design.
As the new design director, her area of responsibility includes all creative and visual branding efforts across collections, sports, additions, essentials and bags and shoes.
Foos has been a designer for over 25 years and is considered a knitwear specialist. She served as head of knitwear & jersey at Dorothee Schumacher for 12 years until 2017, and most recently, she worked as a freelance illustrator and artist.
Her appointment follows the departure of Katja Konradi earlier this year, a move that kickstarted a wider overhaul of the brand’s creative team.
