Note from our Founder

Fiona Sanderson
Founder & managing director

“I relish being at the forefront of one of the most exciting industries in the world and being able to showcase, interview and film some of the most iconic luxury leaders, designers and craftsmen in the world. To know that a company I co-founded in 2007 is now recognised as one of the world’s leading multi-media platforms for luxury lifestyle video content is one of my proudest achievements.

Through our platform, we engage audiences with exciting, groundbreaking films of the finest destinations and unique discoveries, and the culture and craftsmanship that define modern luxury.

The power of video across digital platforms, social media, and the worldwide web generally, is unquestionably invaluable to reaching international audiences, telling the stories behind the brands in increasingly more innovative ways. I foresee very exciting times ahead for the luxury industry, and I am glad to be a part of it.”

She also contributes to other leading luxury lifestyle publications. The LC’s resident grammar fiend is most usually found with a drink in her hand – be that a freshly brewed mug of coffee or a bulb of her favourite gin – and she is well-known in the office for her borderline obsessive shoe collection. Hannah is also (a bit too) proud of the fact that Eva Longoria once retweeted her!
