MILAN — Vionnet SpA has a new majority stakeholder: Go to Enterprise Sarl, headed by the London-based Goga Ashkenazi.
Ashkenazi, who is from Kazakhstan, has taken control of the historic fashion brand through an investment agreement that seeks to accelerate the development of the label. Co-owners Matteo Marzotto and his longtime friend and Marni chief executive officer Gianni Castiglioni, who acquired the brand in 2009, will remain shareholders and maintain their operative roles. Marzotto is expected to become executive vice president; he was previously chairman of the brand. A third existing partner, Marco Casoni, will remain a shareholder and a manager.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
