Melissa Leach is a Fashion and Luxury Brand Strategy Consultant who recently relocated to Bermuda from London. Having been involved in Fashion from a young age as a model, she pursued her interest in the industry by obtaining a Bachelors Degree in Business at University as well as a Post Graduate Degree in Fashion from the London College of Fashion.

After completing her studies, Melissa worked with the British Fashion Council promoting young British Designers internationally. She then moved to Burberry headquarters where she worked for 10 years in senior level management on the business and commercial side of Fashion.

Melissa was then recruited by the President of Jimmy Choo to consult for the brand to write a global business strategy for a key sector and she continues to consult for various luxury brands worldwide.

Melissa’s wealth of experience combined with a natural love of Fashion has given her a very keen eye as well as a practical understanding of the key elements required to build a successful collection, underpinned by a sound business strategy.
