Tag Archives: Frida Giannini

Made the very excellent Business of Fashion newsletter today with my piece from yesterdays WSJ on Uniqlo….

Great company. I love their approach of listening to both the customer and their on floor sales teams, so that they can really supply what the customer wants. They own their supply chain too which is also something Frida Giannini of Gucci said was essential to a great fashion business when I interviewed her. Three best Uniqlo pieces this season:

and my favourite which I’m considering buying for myself – the men’s biker jacket £59.90

I’m really fortunate because I get to interview fashion designers (amongst other people) for my WSJ column. Recently I’ve been chatting to Manolo Blahnik, Michael Kors and Christopher Kane. They all had a few things in common: a sense of humour, an incredible passion for what they do and a refusal to settle for second best. Stay tuned for Frida Giannini from Gucci and Donna Karan, both forces of nature…..
