The Silkarmour customer
The ideal Silkarmour customer is the modern career woman; a woman working in law, business, finance and medicine with a strong sense of personal identity. The Silkarmour customer is intelligent, ambitious and stylish and maintains a strong sense of self to provide the foundations for her successful career. Educated, disciplined and creative, she has earned her place in her industry of choice through the unbeatable combination of motivation, dedication and hard work.
A consumer of fashion – both professionally and personally – the Silkarmour customer understands the value of a polished and professional image. She respects her finances by investing in key power pieces and adorns herself with accessories that reflect her cosmopolitan personality. Through her love of style and understanding of her own tastes, the Silkarmour woman demands respect with her presence in any boardroom, thanks to the exclusive edit of luxury executive attire.
This is a very exciting time for Silkarmour as they are in the catalyst point of expansion and development.
