After the world slowly began emerging from COVID-19 lockdowns, Douglas Benjamin, group CEO of FJ Benjamin, noticed one sector of retail that was booming – luxury.

“There was a time during lockdown when all our shops in Southeast Asia were closed. Something in my gut told me that we would survive, but I was thinking, what will be next for the company? How could we change our business model?” shared Benjamin.

Keen on tapping on the post-COVID luxury shopping boom, “I decided I wanted to do something different,” he added.

Founded in 1959, FJ Benjamin is a fashion retail company that originally introduced single-brand boutiques in Singapore. At present, it manages over 20 brands and operates 144 stores in Southeast Asia. Brands currently in its portfolio include Marc Jacobs, Faure Le Page, Pretty Ballerinas, Lancel and more.
