Expanded vision

MadaLuxe Group, North America’s leading distributor of luxury fashion has launched a licensing arm that will be led by Steven Barbery, who has been promoted from SVP of Timepieces to the newly created role of President of Licensing and Timepieces.


The group’s licensing division will focus on acquiring the worldwide exclusive licensing rights for all fashion categories from leading global luxury brands.

The launch of the licensing arm is MadaLuxe’s most recent move to expand and evolve its business. In September, the company launched SLS Journey, an investment arm led by the group’s co-founder, Sandy Sholl. The investment division focuses on high-potential emerging companies that sit at the intersection of wellness, beauty, fashion and technology and that align with MadaLuxe’s vision in the luxury sector.
