FORWARD MARCH: Carmen March, most recently the designer of Pedro del Hierro Madrid, is bringing back her namesake brand. The Spanish designer is to sell her spring 2017 collection in Paris starting on June 27, just ahead of couture week and timed with the resort season.
The Mallorca-born designer founded her brand in 2004, initially with couture. She moved into ready-to-wear in 2006, ultimately showing her collections during New York Fashion Week. She put her label on hold to helm the Pedro del Hierro Madrid collection from 2013 to 2015.
Grupo Cortefiel halted that upscale designer line. The apparel retailer — Spain’s third-largest after Inditex and Mango — operates the Cortefiel, Springfield, Women’secret and Pedro del Hierro chains and the outlet stores Fifty Factory.
