Creme de la Creme is a bespoke trendhunting and shopping service in Buenos Aires

I select and share the best of the secrets from my address book with my clients. I am also a freelance writer and currently correspond for a range of international publications on the latest Buenos Aires lifestyle, food and fashion, design and architecture.

Shopping service

Customised shopping service

Creme de la Creme is a bespoke shopping service. Each itinerary is 100% tailor made, based on a questionnaire outlining the tastes and expectations of each client and my insider knowledge of Buenos Aires. The service can be one to one or cater for a group of up to 6 people.

Creme works with the freshest emerging fashion designers and hand picks the best appointment only showrooms and specialized stores. We try to include one off pop-up events if they coincide with the dates of any given tour and can make arrangements for out of hour visits on request. We also offer exclusive visits to independent art galleries, and can arrange visits to artists in their ateliers.

Freelance writing and trend hunting

An insatiable curiosity of Buenos Aires has led me to investigate its sleepy backstreets and unearth its most tucked away spots, emerging trends and up and coming talent.

I am a freelance writer and regularly correspond for Wallpaper* and Monocle, and have had work published in The Independent, Departures Magazine, Fathom, and Time Out.

I was raised in Paris and the UK, but have visited Argentina all my life, thanks to my Argentine mother.

I relocated from London to Buenos Aires in 2010 and two years later set up Creme de la Creme, a trend hunting enterprise, showcasing the best of what this city has to offer with a personalized shopping service, with a recently launched blog.
