A friendly and cost-effective helping hand for your Italian purchases
whether it'll be art, gastronomy, culture or, of course, fashion. As the saying goes:
"speak English, kiss French, drive German, but mostly.. dress Italian!"
This is a role I often carry out with the help of my wife and partner Jana. Jana is a British citizen, was born in Georgia and studied in Russia and England, which is where we met quite a few years back. She has far better taste than I and she always did this for her Russian speaking customers. As a personal shopper in the strictest sense of the word, Jana has a very good and trained eye, a super-heightened sense of smell, she can spot quality from a distance and she's well acquainted with past and current trends, she’s therefore ideally placed to act as your style advisor, help with your lifestyle or mundane purchases, find the perfect dress for a special day, or source bespoke and unique gifts. She's been doing this for a long time catering mostly to a high end clientele, and, like me, she can save you time and money buying what's most suitable for your criteria, budget, and shopping occasion.
In case you already know what you want, we can find it for you, pick it up, and pay on your behalf (assisted purchase), then forward it to you wherever you are. Please remember that if you pay us with a payment method that charges fees to the receiver you will need to add those fees on top in order for us to receive the net amount to purchase your item. While if you just need basic shipping assistance in order to have your items forwarded from Italy to your country see here Parcel Forwarding from Europe.
Either Jana or I can visit all the popular Designer Fashion Outlets in northern Italy on your behalf, these fashion districts normally offer discounts of 30-50% from RRP and up to 70% off on selected items, making purchases viable for both B2C and B2B. For your convenience find the brands sold in each outlet here:
> Serravalle Designer Outlet (the largest in Europe)
> The Mall Sanremo
> FoxTown Outlet (Switzerland)
> Fidenza Village
> Franciacorta Outlet Village
Our areas of expertise include Clothing & Accessories, Beauty/Cosmetics, Furniture & Home Decor and Art. The service is not limited to nearby Milan but can be extended, on agreement, to national level.
On a side note which relates to the Home Decoration field, Jana has first hand experience with the broad Italian property market for second homes, she also has a background in the buy-to-let and renovation & restoration sectors in Georgia and the UK, and she's been applying these skills with some of her Russian speaking clients in Italy; something to think about if you're planning on entering the Italian housing market.
