The Istituto Marangoni has named Sonia Ben Maaouia to be the postgraduate program leader, on the Paris campus of the international fashion college. She joins the school after eight years with Karla Otto.
Otto Group saw a boom in H1 as its already-strong online ops grew. The owner of the Freemans, Grattan, Bon Prix, Crate and Barrel, and Quelle brands, among others, benefited from “a change in consumer behaviour”.
Two years after the Karla Otto group merged with Asia-based event organiser K2, the former’s eponymous founder has now become president, while Alexander Werz and Isabelle Chouvet have been appointed co-CEOs.
