New owner for clothing label 'Cavallo'

An equestrian enthusiast with fashion industry experience has made the acquisition.

Brigitte Weeke-Therling is the new owner and CEO of German equestrian clothing manufacturer Cavallo.

The 51-year-old has more than 25 years’ experience as a business-woman in the fashion industry. She also breeds sport horses.

“I’ve used Cavallo products for a long time, so I fully understand the history of the brand as a premium equestrian clothing supplier,” said Ms Weeke-Therling.

“Cavallo’s craftmanship and technical expertise will remain central and I’m very much looking forward to building on the strong customer and supplier relationships we have as well.”

Simon Middleton, managing director of the brand’s UK distributor Zebra Products, said he was looking forward to working with Cavallo’s new owner.

“When we met Brigitte recently in Germany to view the SS19 collection, it was clear that she has lots of fresh ideas and had really listened to the market's feedback about how Cavallo could be further improved.”

In April, ETN reported that the supply of Cavallo products to UK stockists was unaffected by a re-structure of the company.

Cavallo had been running under self-administration following a successful application to the District Court.
