At this point of my life, I am preparing a secure and well-thought-out switchover tothe luxury industry. I have already gathered a solid theoretical knowledge andhands-on experience in marketing. In order to achieve my goal, I would like to obtainan MA Art, Style and Design at joined programme of Christie’s Education and University of Glasgow.
This would develop my hard-skills and give me the required rigorous training inThe world of art, that a badly need. After graduating at Christie’s Education, I am planning to fully immerse myself in the specifics of my new sphere by working for one of the leading luxury good companies, such as Louis Vuitton, Moet Hennessy, Gucci Group, Richemont, The Walpole or even Christie’s. Therefore, I expect to be completely prepared, in terms of knowledge and managerial skills, to launch a startup dealing with deluxe goods within five years.
Together with my sister, we aspire to launch an exclusive jewellery company. She iscurrently finishing BA in Jewellery Design at Saint Martin’s College. Her inspiration and experience of working with famous fashion designers such as Corto Moltedo made her a talented designer. Therefore, we have decided to combine our talents to launch a family business. Our plan is to clearly specify our duties in the company: I will be in charge of general management, whereas Elizaveta will look after the creative side.
For a successful start, we will promote our brand, and then we plan to open our firstshop and showroom in London. We are focusing on three main areas: a basic collection with all-purpose jewellery, seasonal mini-collections and custom-made items for the most sophisticated sharp-dressers. My ultimate goal is to develop and promote a flourishin…
…elationships with my classmates to later becomea truly integrated member of the school’s alumni network, which is vital for businessdevelopment. For all these reasons I believe that Christie’s Education is a perfect match for me, as it has all the instruments at hand to serve my professionalneeds and to help me to reach the next step to achieve my goal.
Eventually, after completing my MA, I will become fully acclimatised with my new industry by working as a manager for a major luxurious goods corporation. Working for a “luxury giant” will assist me in fully understanding the specifics of this distinctive business and in establishing contacts with key figures in the field. In five years from now, I will gather up all means necessary to launch my luxury-goods start-up and perform as a skilled and competent manager as well as an effective leader in general.
