We had the pleasure talking with Emily Abraham owner of Love Luxury
Emily was introduced to the luxury goods industry through her grandfather who would buy gold and other valuables to then sell. Emily would have the task of untangling and sorting the gold into piles of different carat. After specialising in the beauty and aesthetics industry Emily noticed a gap in the market for pre-loved luxury which is how her career took her back to luxury goods.
What prompted you to found Love Luxury?
I had been in the beauty and aesthetic industry for a long time. When I met my husband Adam five years ago he specialised in luxury good, for a while we ran our businesses separately but as Covid put a pause to the cosmetic side of things we decided to focus on what we could do which was e-commerce. We noticed a big gap in the market to buy and sell luxury goods at that time which we focussed on, and as Love Luxury took off online we made the decision to open the first Love Luxury store in Knightsbridge which has gone from strength to strength since opening at the start of last year.
