Before founding MM Luxe Consulting, Marigay enjoyed a twenty year career in luxury retailing, beginning as an executive at Estee Lauder Europe. She eventually moved to the pinnacle of London’s retail world when she joined Harrods as a Senior Beauty Buyer and over a fifteen year period at the helm of buying and product strategy, advanced to become Chief Merchant. As a result of her leadership, Harrods attracted a greater share of high-end luxury clients to the store through the implementation of her strategic vision and direction on exclusivity. Marigay subsequently moved across the Atlantic to be President of Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, where she evolved a new vision for the iconic brand’s luxury and positioning platform, new branding and packaging development and a launch platform for new brands. She is also an advisor to several emerging fashion brands in the United Kingdom and the United States, mentoring young talent and young entrepreneurs.

"The edit cannot be ever underestimated," said Marigay McKee, founder of MM Luxe Consulting.
Agreeing with the idea that experience is king for retail today, Ms. McKee, the former president of Saks Fifth Avenue and chief merchant at Harrods, said that ensuring a brand's place in the future of retail comes down to experience, environment and emotion. Integrating elements of hospitality into the retail space, such as an eatery or a coffee bar, can give consumers more reason to enter a store and spend time there. Dior Cosmetics Mall Shop Display Following this idea of having space for more than shopping, Ms. McKee said that her firm works with a real estate company, since the trend today is moving away from malls and toward mixed-use developments. Ms. McKee said that while retailers used to witness the power of a recommendation from Oprah Winfrey, with products mentioned on the media mogul's list selling out, Instagram holds a similar sway today.

Marigay McKee, President of Saks Fifth Avenue said: "In keeping with our strategy to take Saks Fifth Avenue to the single most fashionable and global shopping destination, we want to cater directly to our international clientele from this location.

I guess Saks and Cadillac aren't really stealing the idea from Harrod's since Saks' new president is Marigay McKee who happens to be the former Chief Merchant of Harrod's.
They're just reusing a good idea.
