When it comes to fashion, Jaqui Lividini is the marketer and brand expert to the stars. Famous (among many other things) for repositioning and reinvigorating Lord & Taylor's brand, as well as introducing Jack Wills to the US and creating a global philanthropic initiative for Godiva, Lividini is a force to be reckoned with.
Her ever-growing company Lividini & Co. is responsible for the strategy, brand development and marketing of the biggest household names in retail. They also have a knack for turning emerging brands into household names. Lividini is also the expert home renovator; her blog on Traditional Home highlights her newest project - something we've unashamedly been following religiously!
