As Featured In
Hi, I’m Marilisa Barbieri! I work primarily as a luxury business consultant, sharing everything I’ve learned after 10+ years of experience in the luxury design industry in North America working for top French and Italian luxury brands. My time in the industry has helped me develop a refined understanding of quality and aesthetics and a strong knowledge of what it takes to succeed in the luxury business, whether your niche is jewelry, fragrance, home decor, or fashion.
As a luxury business expert with an MBA and Interior Design & Arts degree, I coach design professionals and entrepreneurs to identify opportunities, launch new collections, create an effective sales conversion process, scale their design business and increase revenue. My clients include interior designers, product designers, artists, makers, artisans, creatives, fashion designers, and other design professionals.
Besides being featured in the Forbes Expert Panel and in Entrepreneur as one of their “Featured Voices”, I have also collaborated with global design authorities like Maison & Object in Paris, the Pacific Design Center of Los Angeles, and NY NOW.
I am passionate about sharing my expertise and business secrets with design professionals all over the globe and offering online courses, teaching webinars, doing 1:1 consultations, speaking at conferences, conducting training programs, and providing mentorship or advice to entrepreneurs who want to learn how to start a luxury brand business.
