Hervé Léger has entrusted the creative direction of its womenswear collections to Christian Juul Nielsen. The designer is already working on his debut collection for the label, acquired by Authentic Brands in 2017.
Following a few days of rumor, the news is now official. The Diane von Furstenberg brand announced on its Twitter feed late Wednesday night that fashion executive Sandra Campos will take the reins as its new CEO.
Marc Lasry, the billionaire co-founder of Avenue Capital Group, said on Wednesday that the firm has invested in some of the approximately $4.8 billion in debt of luxury department store chain Neiman Marcus Group.
The teen fashion retailer is preparing to file for bankruptcy, a lawyer for the company said, in the latest example of a U.S. brick-and-mortar retailer becoming a casualty of consumers moving toward online shopping.
The brand development and licensing company confirmed with Fashion Network the acquisition of Hervé Léger. The French fashion house was acquired by Marquee Brands in August 2017 with the BCBG portfolio.
