Marks & Spencer has named former Miss Selfridge director Alex Dimitriu as its new Head of Menswear Buying.

Dimitriu has held a number of senior roles with big name high street retailers and her latest appointment marks a return to Marks & Spencer.

Since March 2018, she held the role of buying and design director at Arcadia’s Miss Selfridge. Previous to this role, Dimitriu was womenswear director at New Look and also held roles in merchandising, buying and design during her time there.

In 1998, Dimitriu joined M&S as a Senior Buyer and then went onto become the Head of Buying between 2013 and 2016.

Wes Taylor, Director of Menswear, at M&S said: “M&S is changing and we’re pleased that the scale and pace of our transformation is attracting both new and returning talent to M&S.

“Alex is a brilliant buyer and brings with her a great sense of style and strong leadership skills. Working closely with Karen Hall who joined us last year as Head of Design and the wider menswear management team she will help drive our strategy for M&S menswear.”

Taylor is a former managing director at Arcadia’s Burton brand and joined M&S in 2018.
