We are leaders in our industry

In an operating landscape marked by flux and uncertainty, we enable powerful partnerships that safeguard reputation, embed resilience and enhance ROI.


We bring talent and culture together in perfect partnership.

We are a small executive search agency with a global voice in luxury, fashion and beauty. For us, every search is personal. Our approach is deliberate and deeply collaborative, honouring each client’s culture and vision, each candidate’s dreams and ambitions.



Our strategic focus

Strategy informs every search. Before we begin, we rigorously research our clients’ most pressing priorities and long-term targets in order to pair them with the perfect talent.


Our flexible format

We place a premium on flexibility and mobility. We offer both short and long-term opportunities, and consciously build diversity and inclusivity into our process.


Our global footprint

We operate across geographies, drawing on a rich and wide-ranging pool of talent. While our current focus is in London, Paris, Milan, US and APAC, we’re always broadening our horizons in search of new talent.


As a team, we’re a little obsessed with the luxury industry. We pour this passion into each search to find the world’s most dynamic individuals and connect them to the perfect opportunity.

We’re excited by the changes in our industry and determined to contribute to its growth and continued reinvention. To do this, we build and maintain close relationships with both clients and candidates, anticipating their needs and honouring their ambitions.

Lisa Wise

Director of Fashion

Before transitioning into luxury global recruitment, Lisa excelled in the luxury fashion industry, building and leading Buying, Merchandising, and Product Development teams at prestigious brands like Prada Group, Bally, and Aquascutum. Over the past 30 years Lisa’s natural warmth, creativity, and strength in product management and leadership have given her deep insights and a passion for the industry.

These solid foundations mean Lisa understands what makes for a successful, cohesive team, and this enabled her to segue seamlessly into JDF, where she now works on senior leadership roles for high-profile brands.

She is dedicated and passionate about supporting her client’s ambitions to grow thriving, successful teams. At the same time, she understands her candidates, and supports their career growth in the luxury industry.

When not working furiously on her client briefs, Lisa enjoys spending time outdoors, particularly long walks on the beach or in some of London’s beautiful parks.
