The Bespoke Personal Shopping Service You Need to Know About

Celebrity stylists, pieces few people can get their hands on, and access to the world’s best fashion houses. Need we say more?

Whether you’re putting together a client-facing wardrobe for a week of work travel, or need fresh looks for a French Riviera getaway, assembling a high-end, très chic travel wardrobe is a challenge. Even when armed with a portable steamer and city-specific shopping guides, curating an ensemble that transitions seamlessly from day meetings to night events, or a meticulously styled gala outfit at a moment’s notice often requires some fashion reinforcements. 

This is effectively why personal shopping services were invented. But there’s a few cutting-edge companies taking the personalization and exclusivity factor to the next level. Farfetch's Private Client Service is a bespoke, hyper-personalized shopping service.

Curated shopping isn’t just about finding the wardrobe that suits you—it’s about tracking down the most-coveted pieces. Hard-to-find accessories—timepieces, jewelry, shoes—are currency in the luxury fashion market. That’s what really sets the Fashion Concierge extension of the Private Client Service apart; they’re hunting down those limited-release, bespoke pieces, by working with 1,100 brands, boutiques, and department stores worldwide. 

The global fashion curator has stylists available to their Private Clients in 19 cities, from Los Angeles to Dubai. So, while Farfetch is available online and in-app, there’s plenty of opportunity to take the experience offline. Not to mention the fact that Farfetch Private Client stylists will legitimately fly to their clients’ side to provide fashion insight if needed.

The stylists also work with designers on-site to get exclusive access to new releases. They’ll even arrange in-person meetings between Private Clients and luxe fashion houses and designers. It’s truly putting the most exclusive fashion at your fingertips. 

From start to finish, here’s how the whole Farfetch Private Client experience works. When you join, you are signed on as a Private Client, you’re styled either in-person or with your fashion concierge online. It’s all about designing looks to impress, using pieces that few others can get their hands on. If you work with your stylist—who probably has experience styling Hollywood A-listers—in person, you can likely walk out with the clothes you need. Or if the whole styling experience happens online, you can get same-day delivery in 12 cities between Miami and Milan. The more you use your stylist regularly, the more he or she will get to know your personal taste. Ultimately, what Farfetch gets you is both access and immediacy. And when you’re traveling the world, and intend to do so in style, that’s exactly what you need.
