About the speakers
French entrepreneur Delphine Lefay co-founded OnTheList, a platform pioneering the concept of independent, members-only flash sales in Hong Kong – launching in Singapore this September.
After completing a Master’s degree in Luxury Management in Europe and Asia at the Université Paris Dauphine, she went on to manage brands across Europe and the Asia Pacific in marketing, sales, and business development. Prior to setting up OnTheList, Delphine held the role of International Sales Development Manager for a Paris based shoe, clothes & accessories brand in her homeland of France and moved to Hong Kong in January 2015 to assume the role of Asian Sales Manager for Groupe Eram, an international group of 12 accessible, responsible and online fashion brands.
During her time in Hong Kong, she and co-founder Diego Dultzin Lacoste noticed a gap in Asia’s luxury retail industry – an absence of options for premium brands looking to dispose of excess inventory. OnTheList was established to fulfil this need. Combining their extensive retail and luxury brand knowledge and connections - including expertise managing international distributors - she and Diego developed a unique, sustainable, business model that appealed to both brands and consumers; offering brands access to a wider consumer base and a more sustainable approach to clearing excess stock, while consumers gain access to premium products at great prices.
Today, OnTheList is sought-after by big names like Armani, Vilebrequin and Roberto Cavalli and connects over 200 premium fashion and lifestyle brands to its 160,000 members and counting.
