Your main missions will be the following:

• Monitoring the Visual Merchandising of the boutiques, via IWD, photo reports and regular visits, ensuring guidelines are followed, and VM standards are met and exceeded.

• Providing VM feedback to your markets regarding all VM matters (collection launches/ VM animations/Window set ups/VM rotations etc.) making sure changes, when needed, are explained and executed, and working closely with the local VM teams to improve the VM displays.

• Managing store openings, special presentations, pop up set ups: you are responsible for following up your market VM projects, and supporting with your market knowledge to achieve a smooth & timely coordination. You will attend some of the set ups and making sure the VM standards are achieved.

Your profile:

You hold a bachelor’s degree from fashion, visual merchandising, business or communication school and have min. 5 years of experience in Visual Merchandising roles in the retail or luxury field (having a market experience would be a plus).
