>>So we are in this room today to talk about a space that we have inside Printemps, which
is a store in the centre of Paris. This store has supported us right from the beginning.
It's the first time where my customer, um, has more choice in what she buys, we have
accessories we also have ready-to-wear, it's a larger buy. It means I can to reach out
in a more personal way to my French customer.
>>We're regularly having catch ups with regards to all of the categories and how they're performing.
It's great that I can sit in London and Skype with my team. The other day I was Skypeing
with a couple of people that were going to potentially work here, in Printemps, in my
little space here so I could interview them over Skype which is great, that sort of thing
is very important to really get a feel of the person.
>>What's next? What's next. You know I've mentioned that I'd like to do shoes one day.
You know I love menswear, um, you know there's lots of categories within what I'm currently
doing where I want to expand. In five years from now hopefully we'll have more stores,
we're about to open our flagship store in Dover Street in central London, so hopefully
there'll be more stores whether that's the US which is very important market for me.
>>This year I've just opened up an office and, um, I'm actually positioning a team on
the ground there so we can really focus on the US. It might be Asia, Asia is another
very important market for me. I look at it as a big picture and I don't want to rush
anything. I'm learning along the way and I'm bringing more and more team members on board
that can guide me in the best possible way.
