Speaker Bio
Sarah Davis first founded ultra-luxury re-commerce company FASHIONPHILE as an eBay platform in 1999 when she discovered that luxury handbags and accessories sold faster and held their value in the secondary market better than any other category. Nearly twenty-five years later, Fashionphile is now the largest online platform for buying and selling ultra-luxury handbags and accessories in the country including Chanel, Hermès, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. Under Sarah’s innovative leadership, Fashionphile is paving the path to revolutionize not just re-commerce, but the entire retail industry with a 2019 investment and minority stake in Fashionphile from global retailer Neiman Marcus Group. The strategic partnership makes Neiman Marcus the first major luxury retailer to expand into the pre-owned market, a move that includes the opening of physical Fashionphile selling studios inside Neiman Marcus locations nationwide.

Sarah will be the first to tell you, Fashionphile is not just a fashion company, but rather, a technology company at its core. Since the company’s inception, Sarah’s first and foremost priority has always been authentication. Thus, she has been dedicated to developing sophisticated computer-based learning systems to help aid in the pricing, identification, and authentication of pre-owned luxury accessories. Sarah leverages one of the company’s best assets — their database of hundreds of thousands of their own sold product listings and their associated photos — to create progressive algorithms and computer learning models that result in an unmatched authentication accuracy and efficacy rate.
