'Uché's first book, Luxury Fashion Branding, revealed an author of intelligence, insight with humor, and a passion for the online side of luxury.

Her commitment to excellence and facilitating the online aspects of luxury make her book a must read.' - Michael Boroian, Founder& Managing Partner, Sterling International (Luxury Executive Search)
'In her book Luxury Online, Uché takes an objective approach into presenting why the luxury sector has been reluctant to embrace the internet.

Unfortunately the font is wrong and too small (I'm in the 30s, not an old chap...) and the style is quite boring...

I can quote another review: "I personally left the book for good when the theoretical shopping of an oriental princess was described. She was seeking online information before her brick and mortar shopping trip to Europe. She could not find relevant information on sizes, colors et cetera in ordinary e-channels like company sites, "Vogue" ([...] instead, perhaps?), but was thrilled by Christian Lacroix' La Redoute collection and would shop from there on the Europe trip (!). - Does this author even know what La Redoute is? A mail order giant, by their styles judged serving everything from the working class to upper middle classes ...
All in all the book is far too wordy (why mention f.ex. World of Warcraft?) and might serve as an introduction to web presence for online analphabets (especially those who think e-luxury is a self-contradiction). And these are many, even among scholars scrutinizing the Internet. For younger people professionally already into social media et cetera it is not much more than a waste of time."
