Sunday 20-10: UNFOLDING INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
Luxury in the global market
Christian Blanckaert, member of the Advisory Board of Vlisco – former Executive Vice President of Hermes International.
Although many companies continue to suffer from the impact of the financial crisis, the luxury goods market is still performing well. According to economic rules, the demand for luxuries goods should decline in times of crises, after all these goods are not essential. But strangely enough it doesn’t seem to be affecting creative brands like Vlisco. Why is this brand still performing so well on the international market?
We will discuss this with Christian Blanckaert, former Executive Vice President for Hermes. Blanckaert spent 23 years in the luxury goods market, before leaving to become President of Petit-Bateau, as well as a Professor of Management at ESCP in Paris and the author of several books on luxury. He is also chairman of the board of the French National school of Decorative Arts (ENSAD).
