“If we had known Italia Excellence before leaving Italy, we would have understood better the difficulties of launching a business abroad. We would have understood laws, funding, investment requirements, British market trends and concepts.

Buyers and Experts

“In this competitive fashion market, awareness is the key to succeed. The market is fed up with malls. People want to feel things, touch the fabric. They look for design, longevity, romance and individuality. In this perspective there is space for the companies that i-xcellence promotes, offering them the possibility to penetrate the market combining brand awareness and multichannel sales, through a physical touch”.
Claire Arksey, Director of Retail Operations, Reiss

“As an independent retail we have direct contact with our customers. We see them and listen to them, day by day, offering our best service they deserve. In the virtual world we are living, the customers are very savvy and i-xcellence is a proof of the touch need”
Simon Burstein, CEO, Browns

“The independent retail will never become the high street but has to compete with it. If its brands sell a dream for the customers, then it will succeed. Initiatives like i-xcellence are good to find out niche and fine garments to live”.
Roger Wade, Founder, Boxpark

“As a buyer of wine, having access to a showcase where to taste and smell the perfume of the products is fundamental. I live the experience of a discovery that I want to transmit to my clients. You need to be in touch and sync with the product, get to know the origin and the story behind it, especially if you look for local and special products. Italia Excellence is the brilliant idea that can give you the initial taste of the Italian origins”.
Armando Russo, wine buyer, Lansdowne Club

Italia Excellence project is very interesting for companies that look for niche products, refined and innovative for their Italian flavor or design, all because we want to provide a special service for our clients”.
