For over 25 years I have worked at the highest level of fashion and interior design. As a “strategic developer”, I am able to manage retailing, marketing, sales, team leadership, stores management, training activities.

My ‘expertise” is “international: Europe, USA, Asia with various top international brands such as Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent and Andree Putman interiors among others. My experience covers many important areas involving marketing, retail and wholesale activities. Employees: make them understand designs when hiring, training, motivating and rewarding them to bring their skills / productivity levels in line with the goals of the company. I enjoy working from the core identification of the niche in the market to following the final concept through design, planning, development and control of interiors, fashion or corporate programs. I have excellent communication, people management skills and I am equally happy working within an existing team following headquarter policies independently or with smaller independent designers and retailers.

I understand also how to manage one store structure independently than another one, belonging to the same group.

Having set up and run my own independent interior, production design and event planning organization in the south of France for many years, I also understand the constraints of small business. My wealth of experience and contacts in top international group (wholesale and retailing) are valuable assets for companies or designers looking to develop or launch their European, American or Asian markets.

Strong track record in designing successful products for over 10 years. Support to Global Design houses for the development and launching of new products. High level of expertise and experience in customer care and service provision. Unique understanding of customer’s needs and converting these into design quality products for rapidly changing global market environment.

Clear vision for product design to capture the attention of consumers. Merchandise: Ability to strategize and implement with effective results for the marketing of high-end fashion and interior design retail.

Strong creative skills with artistic integrity for product designing, branding and messaging

Positive outlook,

Goals, challenges, detail oriented,
