Anya Hindmarch is back in the top job at her eponymous fashion label, eight years after she stepped down as chief executive. She’s now managing director and will continue in her other role as creative director.
Iranian-born businessman Javad Marandi and his wife Narmina have bought a majority stake in Anya Hindmarch from Qatari private investment firm Mayhoola, which increased its shareholding to more than 75% last year.
Anya Hindmarch has chosen to leave the traditional fashion week show format in favour of smaller consumer events but its latest project will still see the brand promote its AW18 collection during London Fashion Week.
Call it a bumper London Fashion Week; with some epic shows, brilliant displays of experimental fashion; the debut of great heritage brand and a fond farewell to the most successful British designer of this century.
