Welcome to the latest episode of our Podcast series "In Conversation" where we bring you inspiring stories, retail insights and conversation from fashion's most influential business leaders.
MR PORTER Buying Director Sam Kershaw rose through the ranks of the luxury global online menswear retailer, having joined in 2012 just a year after the business launched in 2011.
He learnt his trade from some of the best buyers in the business at Harvey Nichols, where he spent five years before being recruited by MR PORTER – initially as an accessories buyer.
Sam talks us through his early days - transitioning from established luxury UK department store to what was then the start-up menswear specific arm of Net-a-Porter - and its exponential growth, as well as all that’s been going on to celebrate MR PORTER’s 10th anniversary.
