UNDERSTANDING CULTURAL GAP: INDIA VERSUS THE WEST
A Power Talk by Philippe Mihailovich
June 5, 2020

Philippe Mihailovich (CEO, HAUTeLUXE) enthralled the class with his extensive knowledge of the Indian luxury market. During his talk, he advocated the need for a luxury brand to stay authentic to its roots.

“Mr Mihailovich’s session helped us understand where the Indian art form is lacking in establishing itself as a luxury brand in the global market. The analysis of the events in the past, which led to the decline of the demand for Indian art, was very well explained. He shared that focusing on creation is more important than craftsmanship.” – Karishma Bhandari (MGLuxM August 2019 Intake)

 

UNDERSTANDING LUXURY ART
A Power Talk by Bhavna Jasra
June 18, 2020

Bhavna Jasra (Founder/Artist, First Impression India) is well-known within the Indian luxury art circle and was the speaker for our Power Talk on ‘Understanding Luxury Art’. During her session, Ms Jasra shared examples from her entrepreneurial journey and answered several questions from students keen to make a career out of luxury art. Students were thrilled to have had the chance to experience and learn from an artist whose work adorns the homes of many celebrities and leaders.

“Ms Jasra's session was highly interactive. She drew insights from her learnings and experiences as an artist. They were precise, metaphorical and honest. A key takeaway for us was that art requires knowledge and education to be fully appreciated and marketed.” – Deepshika Lunia (MGLuxM August 2019 Intake)

 

UNDERSTANDING LUXURY YACHT
A Power Talk by Ashish Gupta
June 24, 2020

The Power Talk with Ashish Gupta (Director, Beyond Designs) began with students interacting with him on various aspects of the business of luxury yacht travel right from the get-go. Mr Gupta, a subject matter expert, engaged the students as he took them on a virtual journey around the world on yachts he had designed. The class was treated to some incredible designs and stories of how every piece was developed.

“The Power Talk by Mr Gupta gave us insights into the world of luxury yachts – a sector not many of us were familiar with. The best part of the session was interacting with Mr Gupta who encouraged us to ask more questions. He explained the different sizes of yachts, how the interiors are worked on, how they are made from scratch and the process of designing one.” – Shreya Agarwal (MGLuxM February 2020 Intake)

Earlier in April this year, SP Jain had organised a masterclass on the private air travel industry. The session was hosted by Suhas Kataria (Founder of LuxuryAbode.com) who gave our students a behind-the-scenes look at the booming business of private jet travel. (READ MORE)
