As fas as I can remember, I have always been passionate about Fashion and I have been working in the industry for the past 10 years.

From 2006 to 2011, I owned an online company of luxury resale and personal shopping in France, using my own website, as well as other online resale channels.

I came to L.A. in 2011 and immediately started working on the creation and development of a great resale boutique, theXchange.

I also service private clients for all their wardrobe and personal shopping needs, as well as the resale of their closets.

Over the years, I have been working on pieces from all type of designers, ranging from high street (Zara, COS, Topshop, …) to high end (Chanel, Vuitton, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Alexander Wang, …), vintage from different eras, and independent European and American labels (Pour La Victoire, Isabel Marant, Vanessa Bruno, Gérard Darel, Martine Sitbon, Three Floor…) .

My expertise lays in the knowledge of current trends, as well as in the cautious appraisal of each piece, which are the pillars of a successful resale process.

I am always excited to discover people’s closets and help them get the best out of what they own, as well as finding new ways to wear their forgotten gems and handpicking the trends that will enhance them.
