selling dynamics

A lingerie brand and an accessories brand, both relatively new companies, both selling some wholesale and some direct to consumer, both making a name for themselves in the marketplace. This is a conversation with Aaron Luo, CEO of Caraa (which is designed by Carmen Chen Wu), and Thistle and Spire founders Lily Chen and Maggie Bacon. Their approaches to the redefined marketplace and new selling dynamics, despite existing in relatively disparate product sectors, are remarkably aligned.

Joseph Cicio

In the mid-1970s the Macys flagship store’s main floor was decorated with bedsheet patterns and bargain bins of dinnerware. The man who changed it, and changed much of how merchandising and retail works is Joe Cicio.

“When you’re distinctive through merchandising, you become an attraction.”
