Who we are





Rio de Janeiro - New York - Paris


Fashion has always been present in Simone's life. She studied at ESMOD in Paris and soon realized she thoroughly enjoyed the commercial aspect of fashion. While working in well known fashion houses she fine tuned her expertise taking courses in Fashion and Buying Management at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and Parsons School of Fashion in NY.


With experience in the international fashion market including 7 years with Ralph Lauren in Europe, Simone returned to Brazil leading the international expansion of  the Brazilian fashion brand Osklen. She experienced first hand the difficulties that Brazilian companies were having in expanding   internationally.  They venture out of Brazil but are unable to establish themselves and grow in foreign markets.


A strong believer that successful   growth in the international fashion markets depends on careful planning prior to launch, Simone opens in 2014 her fashion consulting office, SIMONE FASHION BUSINESS CONSULTING, focusing on developing and expanding Brazilian fashion brands internationally.





With a new market concept, SIMONE FASHION BUSINESS offers a tailor made consulting service for each and every client,  whatever level of development of the brand may be. Developing launch strategies for the positioning and branding, with the appropriate    placement of the client in the international market.
