FASHION RETAIL SAFARIDecember 2019 – TFR first publication at Amazon and listed as 27 Best New Retail Books to Read in 2020 by BookAuthority

The Fashion Retailer blog is about news, insights, opinion essays and interviews specializing in the Fashion Retail industry. It focuses on thoughts about the latest industry and customer trends, on describing different business models (e.g. fast fashion, luxury), key industry players (retailers and etailers) and how companies are facing the technological era.

Why a blog about fashion retail?

Fashion and retail seems to be two different worlds. We usually differentiate Science from Art, operations from design. Two oppostite profiles or skills, like ying and yang. The idea of the blog is understanding both sides of the coin.

Retail is moving from flagship to brandship and different store concepts. Fashion retail is not dead, it´s just adapting to the digital era where omnichannel will create new ecosystems.


Who I am

Then, I worked 5 years at Accenture Strategy, from analyst to subject-matter expert (SME) specializing in the Retail industry, both in business innovation and strategy & operations. During that period, I have lived in two of the coolest cities in the world, where culture, fashion and art are everywhere. Those are Istanbul (Turkey) and Cape Town (South Africa). Meanwhile, I´ve been involved in projects for electronics, foods and fashion retailers in Europe, Latin America and Africa.

I recently joined Infor (Software Company) CloudSuite Fashion to contribute in driving digital transformation and Omnichannel in the Fashion Retail Industry as Subject-Matter Expert and build the Global Fashion Innovation Center.

I´m also advisor at Brownie, part-time consultant specializing in Business Strategy, Integrated Planning and Omnichannel, speaker and writer.
