In our final episode of ‘RLI Talks’ for 2020, I am joined by Connie Nam, Founder of the contemporary London-based jewellery brand Astrid & Miyu.
Connie talks about how she founded the business with the mission to revolutionise the jewellery experience. Astrid & Miyu started as an e-commerce brand but has now expanded to four permanent stores in London and two concessions in Selfridges, one in London and one in Manchester - with national and international expansion on the horizon, following three successful Pop-Ups in New York.
Connie also discusses the importance of creating a community around their brand, which they intend to maintain as they continue their expansion.
Retail & Leisure International are proud to be one of the industry’s most recognisable brands, the RLI name synonymous for connecting the world of retail and leisure. No matter who you speak to, it is a brand that evokes reaction and stimulates conversation.
In today’s world, this is immensely powerful. Powerful because in a time when we are divided, communication is what we need the most.
Over the past 15 years, we’ve become far more than a magazine and at times like this you have to forge ahead and make room for the future. So we’re turning our attention to achieving our mission in the most effective and impactful way we can: to continue connecting the world of retail and leisure across all our platforms.
We hope that you enjoy our weekly interviews with retail leaders around the world sharing their insights and secrets to success.
