Farfetch exists for the love of fashion. We believe in empowering individuality. Our mission is to be the global technology platform for luxury fashion, connecting creators, curators and consumers.

Private Client

We’re dedicated to amazing our special customers through our luxury personalised service. We’re a truly global team with functions covering Personal Styling/Shopping, Marketing, Client Development, Customer Service and Operations. We understand the world of luxury fashion and lifestyle and we’re unique in our approach to building long-lasting relationships with our clients, helping them to discover magical experiences through Farfetch.

New York

Our New York office is located in Midtown near the iconic Bryant Park and the historic Grand Central Terminal, New York's best connected office neighbourhood. The beautifully designed office has 360 views and tall windows to bring the outside in. We have a communal kitchen that brings the whole team together for Family Lunch and Happy Hours. The office is open plan with plenty of rooms and booths to take a private call, have time to relax and work in private or have a large collaborative meeting.

The Team

Fashion Concierge is the ultimate global luxury sourcing service.  Our mission is to elevate the Farfetch Private Client proposition by providing our clients with access to the most desirable items from across the globe.  By leveraging our unrivalled (and ever-growing) luxury supply network through our in house, industry-leading technology we have changed the way global customers shop for luxury.

The Role

Responsible for sourcing anything that cannot be found on the Farfetch marketplace for our private clients, our Brand Specialists are the core of the Fashion Concierge service.  The role involves working with our Private Client Stylists to source items within our extensive network of contacts and working with our supply network to surface ‘offline’ stock to our internal teams.

  • You will support our Private Client Stylists by curating edits of immediately available products to share with their clients;
  • You will contribute to medium- and long-term planning through participation in focus groups, team meetings and other ad-hoc projects as required;
  • You will act as a brand ambassador for Fashion Concierge, both internally and externally.

Who You Are

  • You have excellent communication skills;
  • You are results driven and commercially aware;
  • You are self-motivated, pro-active and demonstrate strong organisational skills;
