With the aim to provide a clear picture of the inner workings of the business of luxury and how to get your foot in the door, the GLBS will enable LSE students to explore the different industry areas of the field: Fashion & Accessories, Cosmetics & Fragrances, Watches & Jewellery, Automobiles, Wine & Spirits, Hospitality, etc. Through industry presentations, networking events and panel discussions with a plethora of professionals from the different sectors, students will be able to engage with them on crucial topics related to their respective fields.
The luxury industry is constantly evolving and innovating, and today’s consumers, with millennials and generation Z representing a large part of the market, have ever-changing as well as increasing expectations of luxury brands and the services they provide, compared to what was expected 50 years ago. Therefore, the GLBS wishes to explore various themes, such as the quest for sustainability and responsibility, Fairtrade, the rising importance of collaborations in new luxury, digital luxury & social media, customer demographics and women in the luxury supply chain. Furthermore, we aim to delve into the massive impact that the current Covid-19 pandemic has had on the industry.
By intentionally being a ‘Global’ society, we hope to be as all-encompassing as possible in terms of our reach in Luxury business topics, companies and sectors.
