Faith Marcus has over two decades of experience in fashion, accessories and luxury goods . Her background is vast and diverse, with expertise in retail management at store and executive level, buying and visual merchandising, training and customer service, talent recruitment and development.
Faith worked for Yves Saint Laurent as a buyer for the prêt-à-porter in Paris and for YSL accessories, and was General Manager of a Saint Laurent Rive Gauche boutique. She worked for Louis Vuitton North America for over a decade, where she was elevated from multiple store management to Regional Director of Western Stores and supervised marketing, visual merchandising and recruitment. She held a dual role as National Director of Training for the North American zone, where she created and facilitated programs for newcomers and executives covering wide ranging topics, from product knowledge to best customer service standards, elevating performance as well as creating motivational tools. Her specialized programs were focused on brand ambassadorship before it became a mainstream concept. Her unique and forward vision in next-level training and customer service standards led to her being recognized for excellence in training for a global company. During her tenure, she also worked with the luxury brand Loewe (an LVMH company) as General Manager of their Rodeo Drive flagship store, and buyer for their wholesale representation in the U.S.A.
Her career has taken her from New York to Miami to Beverly Hills. After leaving the corporate world, she launched her own vintage interior décor and accessories business specializing in French and Italian furnishings and accessories ranging from 19th century to mid century modern, and included collectible vintage and antique jewelry. Aptly named "TheLuxuryLife" she had a successful online business as well as representation in brick and mortar locations in Santa Monica and Newport Beach, California, catering primarily to decorators and the trade. Her love of gemstones and their properties led her to create her own one of a kind jewelry line, which was previously showcased at The Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas and was available online.
Faith launched The Jewelry Showcase in September 2018, a curated online shopping destination for luxury artisan and fine jewelry design.
Faith understands the creative world as well as the operational side of running and marketing small and large businesses. Her knowledge and understanding of both worlds and how to effectively merge them, coupled with her desire to uplift, inspire and motivate others led her launch the platform and to expand on her personalized consultation services. Whether beginning or emerging, there is always growth opportunity, and Faith recognizes every designers' potential and helps them to achieve their goals.
