Fazia Slimane

Luxury retail specialist with ten years + experience in London and Paris

Passionate about luxury and retail, I have worked for several French and American companies in Paris, USA and London which enabled me to have a multi cultural experience and an understanding of London market. I started as a sales assistant at Christian Dior Montaigne boutique in 1999, I fell in love with the refinement of the House of couture and chose to work in retail until 2018. In 2017, I reconverted as a yoga teacher to be able to spend more time with my children and doing a practice I am enjoying very much. Today I am looking for a position where I could offer my experience in sales, training or recruitment. In my previous roles, I was enjoying selling luxury pieces, coaching and developing my sales team.
