Manos Gerakinis FINE LUXURIER the man behind the brand

Manos Gerakinis

How it all began...

After studying at university, his exquisite taste and love for fashion led Manos Gerakinis to the world of Luxury Management in 2001 where he spent a decade serving the luxury fashion industry. Manos managed the ‘Luxury department’ at Harrods, and in 2010 he was awarded Manager of the Year for a phenomenal turnover increase. During his time at Harrods, he had the opportunity to work with the biggest names in luxury fashion such as Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Alexander McQueen and Giuseppe Zanotti, while his clientele included international celebrities, footballers and VIP’s.

End of an era, the start of the dream...

In 2012, after leaving Harrods, Manos started his own business and launched ‘Closet on the Go’. His idea was unique: a platform that would enable users to match their own items with potential new pieces they could purchase online. Closetonthego.com currently holds over 800 of the world’s most exclusive fashion, shoe and accessories designers including Manolo Blahnik, Saint Laurent, Gucci, Roland Mouret, Dolce & Gabbana, Giambattista Valli and Oscar de la Renta.

What the future holds...

In 2014 Manos launched his first luxury fragrance 'Manos Gerakinis, Sillage Royal', a fragrance for men and women with a strong personality who want to make a statement with their presence - denoted by ‘Sillage’, which is a French word for a fragrance’s trail in the air. In 2015, he enriched the collection with ‘Sillage Suave’.

Manos Gerakinis, fine luxurier and founder of Closet on the Go, is a young entrepreneur who aims to change the way we perceive luxury fashion today.
