got lit today - fashion fuel
This morning just after I woke up, I started searching the internet! The result was like putting gasoline on my fashion senses and really got me spinning! You must know how I do adore the deep discussions about the luxury fashion industry! Both from my ethnologic (relations between humans) and fashion scientific academic background. I am convinced that my education (and personality) has helped me enourmously in my previous luxury sales jobs and even more so at my current work Louis Vuitton (yepp still on contract though on vacay) as client adviser. Maybe it is these two factors (personality and academic choices) that are the the simple reasons why I am labelled "superseller".
More and more often, nowadays nearly daily, I do feel I want to move "upwards and onwards". I want to really make use of my education. This blog gives me a space to express and challenge one really strong side in me, analysis of the luxury fashion industry. It also challenge me to think ahead: What will the luxury fashion industry look like, shortterm and longterm. Where will products and customers meet and what will make the meetings successful for both parties? It also helps me to stay updated in innovation, designs and modernity within the fashion industry! I feel a solid obligation keeping this blog, with so many viewers from all over the world, and in order to keep it valid and legit as a deeper fashion blog then any other blog I have ever read. If I would start counting I do think that this last year I have spent avarage about 20 hours a week on this blog, even more at its birth a couple of years back. I constructed the homepage all by myself and got a systemarchitect to build it up technical together with me. This is foremost a blog out of personal interest to keep update and provide a whole new type of blogging in this world, without any payment, adlinks or profit. :)
I also do like to share some articles that I do consider reflections, or challenges, to my own ideas about the luxury fashion industry. Here I present 2 articles I have been thinking inspired by about this morning: 1. An openhearted and very sinister interview that I do adore with Antoine Arnault. He speaks frankly about everything from customers segments (Virgil Abloh for instance), the family company LVMH, creating a better industry (#metoo and skinny models). The article you may read yourself at South China Morning Post thru link here. 2. The second article is most thrilling from Jing Daily and about "How Louis Vuitton upped its digital game in China". You can find it on link, here! (On left of the article are links to "other posts" consisting interesting articles about luxury fashion).
Now about yesterdays and todays: Yesterday evening I went to the Louis Vuitton store to catch up with my collegues and grab a dinner out with the whole Stockholm "LV family". I already miss them so much and yet my vacation has just begun <3 This really got me thinking that my future is at Louis Vuitton. I do not really know if I would prefer to get some opportunity to try on PR/Marketing or continue as a Client Advisor. What I do care about is that I need a steady career talk asaå, as I have been getting strong feelings about being open for a career in management. I do want to have some goals these upcoming 5 years. I am very strategic, yet very adaptable, so it would be just right for me to get some assurance in what direction LVMH want sme to move forward too :) Today, is all about hunting! Hunting for new shoes :) I never buy fashion that I do not absolutely adore and desire. Seems hard to find the perfect new evening shoes in Stockholm at the moment? Will give search for these another shot today! xoxo
