Jeans and fashion label M.O.D – Miracle of Denim has announced the recruitment of Tanja Hettich as new head of design. Hettich was a long-desired hire for the brand. Akin Erdogan, chief executive at M.O.D’s parent company Monopol Textilhandels GmbH offered her the position over one year ago, but she rejected the job back then.

The spring/summer’17 collection will be the first one created under the direction of the newly-appointed head of design. In the last years, Hettich has occupied various positions such as head of design at Nagano and creative product manager at Khujo.
