A Day In The Life: Virginia Feacey, Vestiaire Collective

Every week we ask another person to have a look at their schedule. This week: Virginia Feacey, head of VIP consignment for Northern Europe at luxury resale website Vestiaire Collective

Virginia Feacey manages VIP selling service for high-net-worth individuals. In this role she visits clients at their homes to sort through any pre-owned luxury clothing and accessories they want to sell through the site. 

She holds a degree in business administration and started her career in the telecommunications industry. Quickly realizing she was more passionate about the business of fashion, she moved to Orsay as business development manager for buying projects before relocating to London and joining Harrods’ personal shopping team. She has now been working in the resale industry for over two years and is passionate about showing consumers more circular options to consuming fashion by buying and selling preloved.

Virginia spends her free time travelling, doing yoga, and reading any books she can get her hands on.
