Industry Profile: Delphine Arnault


Born into one of the most well known families within the luxury industry, Delphine Arnault isn’t just following her family’s lead, she’s taking the reigns into her own hands when it comes to business.




Educated at EDHEC Business School and London School of Economics, Arnault has learned from the best. After beginning her career at McKinsey and Company, she jointed LVMH in 2000 when she started working for John Galliano.


Since then, Arnault has moved around—from Dior to Louis Vuitton, where she now holds the title of Executive Vice President. She’s also been instrumental in creating the LVMH Prize, established in 2014, to help assist young fashion designers and recognize creativity from the beginning of their career within the industry.


When not spending time fronting Louis Vuitton, you can find Arnault perusing modern and contemporary art museums from MoMA in NYC to LACMA in Los Angeles. Or perhaps you’ll just find her wandering about Louis Vuitton Foundation in where it all began: Paris.
