A Day in the Life of Vestiaire Collective Co-Founder Fanny Moizant



Hong Kong-based, French businesswoman Fanny Moizant is the brains behind the ultimate in online luxury pre-owned fashion, Vestiaire Collective...

When she’s not expanding the brand into the Asia Pacific market, you’ll find her spending quality time with her two daughters, Louise and Jeanne. Here’s a typical day in her life. Editor: Marisa Remond | Go to www.vestiairecollective.com


I wake up around 6am, always full of energy ready to start the day...

I do check emails and social media when I wake up, it’s a very bad habit that I’m trying to stop. My mornings are quite rushed, although I love to have breakfast with my girls. Breakfast is my favourite moment of the day – we’ll eat something healthy like avocado toast or chia pudding with smoothies made by my girls. We’ll chat about the day ahead and then I’ll kiss them goodbye before they leave for school. I’ll get dressed, pack a bag with clothes for the day and head to the gym next door to my office to fit in a class before my first meeting. I could get ready and be out the door in 20 minutes – pretty good I think!


I live in jeans, usually with a T-shirt and blazer or blouse...

In Hong Kong, where I moved to six months ago to develop Vestiaire in the APAC regions, I mainly wear flats as it’s too hot for heels, Saint Laurent trainers if I’m running around, Gucci loafers if I have a business meeting or if I’m in the office all day you’ll find me in my Oran sandals. I detox my wardrobe quite regularly and upload pieces to Vestiaire. I like to have a tidy wardrobe where I can see everything I own, then I can get dressed easily each morning. I don’t tend to get attached to clothing, I’m more protective of my jewellery, especially the pieces my husband gave me when our daughters were born. My Mum gave me some Alaia pieces from the 1980’s which I could also never part with.


I'm super organised in general...

I’m good at delegating household chores where possible. Here in Hong Kong, we’re lucky to live with a helper, who really is part of the family and a real gem when it comes to helping around the house. I stopped eating processed sugar a few months ago so mainly snack on almonds and fruit now. When I wake I usually have a green tea and then a coffee when I arrive in the office.


Lunch is always something home-cooked...

It’ll usually consist of fresh vegetables, protein and fruit. I am a big Pilates fan and try to go at least three times a week. We have offices in three continents and somewhere one office is always open which means I make decisions all day long. I am building the team out in Hong Kong and working on great projects in Hong Kong, Australia and Singapore to drive brand awareness. Staying on top of my emails is impossible. I’m not a fan of emails, I feel that we tend to hide behind them. My team and close friends know that to reach me they have to WhatsApp me! I’m always trying to set the right example and be a fair and kind manager.


I get home around 7:30pm, I'll have dinner with my girls...

Once they go to bed I’ll sit down with my laptop before an early night. Dinner is usually something simple, like a salad and grains. I stop working when my body show signs of fatigue and I feel a need to stop but generally at night I pick up on any important emails and prepare my to-do list for the next day. If I’m feeling awake I’ll scroll through Business of Fashion or I’ll watch something on Netflix if I am tired.


I have a weekly massage at home on a Sunday evening...

It’s my treat which really helps me to relax. It’s one of the few times that my brain isn’t thinking about my to-do list. I use Joelle Ciocco skincare both morning and night, I’m very minimal with my skincare and makeup, and I’m always in bed by 10pm. An early night and a good night’s sleep is my tip for a stress-free morning!
