Q:  Who are you?
A: I’m a lawyer who became a tech entrepreneur. I’m the co-founder of Reflaunt a tech solution that brings resell as a service to fashion brands and retailers. Our company allows customers of brands or retailers to be able to resell their past purchases.

Q: Tell us about your playlist.
A: The current atmosphere being quite gloomy, I wanted to put together a playlist with positive vibes. The playlist resonates with a summer atmosphere. Now that we are all confined indoors, I think only books and music can really make us escape reality and cheer up our days.

Q: What are you working on right now?
A: We are working on the final touch of the launch of our service with a number of cool brands like Balenciaga, COS, Ba&sh and others. The service should be available as soon as stores reopen. Let’s hope this will be sooner than later.

Q: What are you working on next?
A: The current context is turning into a serious wake-up call for the fashion industry. Brands and retailers will have to rethink their model. Making the consumption model more sustainable should be on everybody’s agenda. And facilitating the extension of garments lifecycle by offering resell as a service to customers is the most logical approach. I hope in the months to come we will be able to take more forward-thinking brands on board.
