The business of beauty

About Bespoke Advantage

There is no denying that the beauty industry is an exciting and fast-moving marketplace.  It is fascinating to watch the changes that have taken place as the boundaries between beauty, wellness, nutrition and fitness have merged – ‘inside out beauty’ has truly evolved. It has also been interesting to watch the power shift from brands to consumers. Thanks to technology consumers are demanding transparency and authenticity from today’s brands.

When it comes to the business of beauty, developing a brand from an idea to a physical product isn’t easy. There are so many facets to understand – from product design, to packaging, content and getting your brand into retail. The retail environment has changed significantly with the launch of ecommerce, marketplaces, affiliate marketing and influencers. However the principles for success remain the same. Great Innovation. Developing products people want and need and making them easy to purchase.

With an MA in Strategic Marketing and a Diploma in Purchasing and Supply Chain Management, and over twenty years’ experience in retail buying, product development and marketing – working for contract manufacturers, beauty brands, retailers, travel retailers and distributors in the UK, Dubai and South Africa – Janet Milner-Walker knows what is required to build a brand from the ground up. Prior to founding Bespoke Advantage she held positions as Global Product Director for Crabtree & Evelyn; Head of Beauty Buying & Merchandising for Al Tayer Group in Dubai, Global Marketing Manager for the De Beers Group, and senior buying and product development positions for the Heinemann Group, M&S, Boots, Body Shop. With a desire to help people to make a positive impact across this industry and having seen the challenges faced by brands in bringing products to market, in 2017 she founded Bespoke Advantage.

Janet and the team at Bespoke Advantage help brands thrive. If you are looking for support, Get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
