About Us

With the combined experience of 40 years in the business of fashion, the company founders' Simon Lock and Kirsten Lock recognised the challenges created by the changing environment for luxury brands in managing their global wholesale networks.

The impact of the digital revolution, increased retailer competitiveness and other global economic factors have created significant disruption to traditional business channels. Fashion week schedules continue to be in a state of flux and the ability for retail buyers to be able to constantly travel to attend physical showrooms spread around the world, presents a range of logistical and cost related challenges.

The founders’ vision was to create ORDRE as an additional and complementary channel to facilitate the management of luxury wholesale networks globally through the presentation of seasonal collections through online showrooms.

ORDRE has operations in London, Paris, New York and Hong Kong and is looking to establish operations in other key markets.

ORDRE US Director - Stephanie Siu-Wai Kirtley:  15 years in the Luxury Fashion industry at a senior level overseeing wholesale and retail within various Fashion brands including: Balenciaga at Paris Headquarters and Harvey Nichols in the UK.
