Bailey Beckett, who joined 360bespoke as Director of Client Relations in September 2018, is a world renown editor, stylist and bon vivant who has written extensively for publications around the globe, and is often quoted as an expert on travel, fashion and luxury. A Parisian native, he graduated from the Sorbonne before beginning his career as a lifestyle ambassador for the Ritz Paris. There, he befriended top magazine editors, who encouraged him to parlay his experience into a career in media. Before long he became a staple of the front row and a regular presence on the world’s social scene, including the Cannes and Venice film festivals, Paris Fashion week, the AmFAR gala at the Hotel du Cap and appearances on the TM Blue One yacht with designer Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti. Beckett recently debuted a monthly column, “Bits & Bailey,” for the glossy New York Lifestyles magazine. He divides his time between New York, London and his native Paris.
