I am Mathilde Duquesne, a blogger on my spare time… I found in myself a passion for concept stores, when I moved to Hamburg, Germany for three years. These particular shops where so present in this city, so I decided to meet and write about the story of the people behind these fabulous places.
Now located in Paris, working as a strategic planner in a shopper marketing agency, I need to get inspiration and insights from actual retail trends. My passion took another level and I wrote a thesis about concept store: “how does the emergence of concept stores reflect the transformation of retail?” (available in French only, but I am currently translating it in English).
The purpose of my blog is to help people who want to start their own business in a few years. My articles are based on interviews with brave entrepreneurs across Europe. I write to stir your curiosity and especially give you all the motivation it takes to embark on entrepreneurship.
I interview mostly independent boutiques committed to values that touch me. Entrepreneurs who highlight handmade, quality products and fair productions as well as responsible human values.
Good reading and lovely regards,
