Today, we’ll be taking a more in-depth look at this girl boss entrepreneur in the hopes that we all get inspired to be the best that we can be! Let’s get started!
With around 15 years of retail industry experience under her belt, Marigay McKee is someone who knows her stuff. She’s a master marketer, a gem of whom her clients at MM Luxe Consulting can’t stop gushing about — did I mention she has rave reviews from one of the chief officers of Camuto Group and Tommy Hilfiger himself?!
Her foray into entrepreneurship was welcomed with several companies knocking on her door ever since she began. She focuses on creating high-end branding strategies for her clients — ranging from real estate developers to startup fashion labels — and she’s gone over and beyond with each project. Seriously, is there anything she can’t do?
1. She’s a Londoner
Born and raised in London, she worked her way up from beauty buyer to chief merchant at Harrod’s, British’s luxury department store. After 15 years, she moved to Manhattan and took on the reins of another retail giant, Saks Fifth Avenue. Now, the Brit calls the Upper East Side home with her family and two dogs.
2. She Gives Back
She’s an avid supporter of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Autism Speaks. One of the most intense things she’s done is actually jump out of a plane to raise funds for breast cancer. How’s that for exciting!
3. She’s Climbed Mount Everest
Marigay McKee proves to be unstoppable both in and out of the retail industry. A break between two companies took her on a trek of more than 13,000 feet up Mount Everest, which just shows a lot about her can-do attitude.
4. She’s Loved Fashion Even as a Child
As a little girl, she’d choose to read Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar rather than play outside. She even shares that her mom would make her smocks and dresses for special occasions.
5. She’s a Planner
She’s not a fan of panicking about what to wear in the morning so she carefully picks out her outfits the night before. Her favorite style? Matching colors from head to toe.
6. She’s Multi-linguistic
Aside from English, she also speaks Spanish, French, and Italian, which makes her the go-to person for her clients and brands that want to make it big in the global scene.
7. She Has a Dress Signed by Versace
Yes, ladies, she was lucky enough to have a signed dress from Gianni Versace’s last couture show. Knowing how precious the item of clothing is, she says she could never ever part with it.
