A coffee with Emily Roberts

A coffee with Emily Roberts

Hi Emily, welcome to the Lepelclub journal! We are so excited to have you here! Let’s start stirring! Could you tell us a little more about yourself?
Hey, thank you so much for having me! So, I’m Emily, the Marketing Manager at LuxeCollective, the UK’s leading preloved luxury reseller. I’m a big people person and much prefer being in company doing absolutely anything, but most importantly, I’m a new mum... to my cockapoo puppy, Dory.

With your extensive background in marketing, what led you to pursue a career in both marketing and the fashion industry?
I love fashion and style; it’s always been so important to me, so pursuing a career in the industry was always a natural step. The industry itself is like a playground for
marketers – it’s ever-changing and full of opportunities to test creative boundaries. My start in fashion marketing began with multiple fast-fashion brands. I’m grateful for my time in this space; it taught me how to be agile and adaptive to such fast-paced environments, which has been invaluable.

Whilst I appreciate my start in fast fashion for all it taught me, it was also an eye-
opener. In today’s climate, you can’t shy away from sustainability and ethical practices, so with that in mind, I made the shift to pre-loved luxury. The preloved luxury space not only aligns with my values but also keeps me on my toes.
Creating a definitive brand identity, whilst selling others, means we are constantly
innovating and testing new avenues – as it’s such a new market. It’s not just about
selling products; we need to foster a sense of community, redefine how we perceive
luxury, and promote a more sustainable approach to consumption.

Luxe Collective specializes in pre-loved luxury fashion. Do you have a preferred luxury brand or perhaps a vintage item you've always dreamed of owning?
The Saint Laurent Le 5 à 7 in cream is at the top of my wish list for spring/summer,
closely followed by a Gucci Jackie in cherry red or black – a classic Chanel wouldn’t go amiss either! Although I love timeless pieces, I do think fashion is about having fun, especially with accessories. My favourite purchases from Luxe have been a Gucci Ophidia GG mini bag and most recently, my birthday gift of a vintage Chanel bowling bag.

At Lepelclub, we enjoy unwinding with a coffee or cocktail. How do you like to relax after a busy day at work?
Walking is always a way to decompress, especially now that I have my puppy Dory.
We’re lucky to live near the coast, so a walk across the sand dunes onto the beach in summer is the ideal night, followed by an Aperol in the sun. I’d much rather be with people than not, so an evening with friends, laughing and drinking picantes, is also welcomed too.

Reflecting on your career journey so far, what has been the most unexpected lesson you've learned?
I think the most unexpected lesson I've learned is the importance of adaptability. The marketing landscape, especially in the fashion industry, is constantly evolving, and being able to pivot and embrace change has been crucial for both my professional and personal growth.

What's the most valuable piece of advice you've received, whether related to work or personal life, that you'd like to share with our readers?
There are two that come to mind! Taking risks and embracing uncertainty is one. You need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable; stepping out of your comfort zone and taking calculated risks can lead to new opportunities and a huge amount of personal growth, especially when it comes to confidence. Another one is “If you can’t change it, don’t stress about it,” which always helps but is easier said than done!

And finally, how do you hope to stir things up in the future?
Being agile within marketing and the luxury space is a must. It’s been such an exciting year for Luxe Collective, with so much change, so I’m looking forward to the growth and new opportunities ahead. If you love luxury, you won’t want to miss what we have in store…
