Luxury Connect to offer global luxury education in India

Mar '12
Dearth of skilled manpower in Indian luxury industry is being viewed as a business opportunity by Mr. Abhay Gupta, the Ex-Executive Director of Blues Clothing Company, which represents brands like John Smedley, Corneliani, Versace and Cadini in India.

Mr. Gupta has launched a new enterprise, Luxury Connect, which is partnering with international educational institutions for imparting training and education for luxury industry.

The company has collaborated with Italy's SDA Bocconi School of Management to start a luxury business management programme in India in April this year.

It has even tied up with Louis Vuitton's former Retail Training Director Jean Claude Roustant to carry out a luxury customer experience management programme.

According to Mr. Gupta, shortage of skilled workers is one of the biggest issues impeding the growth of luxury brands in India. Luxury items and service industry in India would require around 1.76 million skilled workers at various levels.

In addition to providing education and training, the new enterprise would provide consultancy services to global brands to help them establish their shops in India and would also assist them in sourcing their goods and services from India. It will also help domestic brands to penetrate in international markets.

Luxury Connect has been established by Mr. Gupta along with his long-time associate Rajat Bhattacharya, who would serve as the Chief Sourcing Officer, and NIFT graduate Love Ranga, who would be the Chief Strategy Officer.
