Paula Thomas of Thomas Wylde has hired Elsa Berry’s Vendôme Global Partners to find a strategic partner and investor who can help propel growth at the high-end, rock ’n’ roll-infused brand.
Thomas, who developed her sensibilities as a model in the Eighties London fashion scene — described as a “crazy, brilliant time” — is now well-versed in the business side of the industry. She’s also known in Hollywood and director Ridley Scott turned to her to dress Cameron Diaz in “The Counselor” last year.
