How long have you been with the company? 10 years
What is your favorite part of the industry? Sales is a thrill and design is my passion. Seeing sales soar and buyers loving the product is a great combination.
What have been some of the biggest challenges in the market lately? Keeping up with the constant changes in the industry and not losing focus.
What’s new at Infinity Classics in terms of product, brands, licenses, niches, etc. There is always a lot of excitement and action going on. We are launching our Legmogu’e brand for fall 2015-16. It is a high end luxurious line–catering to the “luxury Maven”–and it has been very well received. We have also expanded our Private Label portfolio, and with that have broadened our design team to help keep up with the company’s growth.
Which designers/runway fashion shows have been most influential for you lately? I have been following many designers, runway shows and trend forecasting, but our brand is designed independently. We are trend setters not followers!
How do you use social media and how has it helped your brand? Social media has become part of our day to day life. Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram are musts in today’s cyber world.
