    Marie-France Pochna

    CEO / PARIS UNLIMITED

    “My professional career in the luxury industry has exposed me to an international elite of influential and discerning individuals who are true ‘citizens of the world.’ Their time is their most valuable asset and when they travel, they do so in pursuit of unique and enriching experiences. With this in mind, I created Paris Unlimited.”

    Born and educated in France, with a dose of New York experience that imbues her approach to business, Marie-France Pochna became an expert on style, fashion and trends in the luxury market and has collaborated with key players such as Baccarat, Cartier, Chanel, Dunhill, Guerlain and Marc Jacobs.

    Her first book, “Bonjour, Mr. Boussac”, a biography on the founder of the house of Dior, won the “Prix Louis Marin de l’Academie Francaise.” Her biography “Christian Dior” is considered the authoritative work on the couturier and has been published worldwide. Her other biographies include Nina Ricci, Paul Ricard and Gianni Agnelli.

    A key contributor to the MBA programs on luxury brands at ESSEC Business School and London School of Fashion, Marie-France is a sought after speaker on topics ranging from the founding of the global luxury goods industry, product and marketing innovation to the mega-hype of the fashion world’s catwalks.

    In 2006, she added television producer to her list of professional accomplishments with “Luxury Unveiled”, an insider’s look at some of the world’s most prestigious luxury brands which was broadcast in over 40 countries including mainland China.

    The culmination of all of this experience is Paris Unlimited, a way for Marie France to share her passion, unique insights and access to the cultural heritage of the city of Paris with the like minded, the curious and the fascinated.
