MARC O’POLO is one of the leading brands in the premium segment, especially in womenswear. The aim of the company is to further advance this position. Kerstin Dorst’s task will be to support MARC O’POLO in further developing the brand and strengthening its international positioning even more. “With Kerstin Dorst, we are bringing an internationally experienced design and product expert onto our team. Her great preference for details and innovations as well as her expertise in material development convinced us,” says Susanne Schwenger, CPO MARC O’POLO AG.
Kerstin Dorst has already launched several very successful collections for major brands. Most recently, she set up Tory Sport in New York together with Tory Burch, where she was Vice President Design and Product Development. Prior to that, she was Senior Product Line Manager at adidas, where she was responsible for various lines within the adidas Fashion Group. MARC O’POLO is not unknown to her, either. Dorst began her career there in the Buying Women division.
