Xenia Glutz von Blotzheim

Equipped with a fashion management and marketing degree from the London College of Fashion, I gained extensive marketing and communications experience in various large and small lifestyle, fashion and luxury and sportswear companies in Paris, London and the US.

The task was to build the brand from the ground-up, with the key challenge being to form the brand and make it known to the global audience.
