About FDKG

As specialists in the Chinese luxury sector, FDKG has spent many years building and fine-tuning its practical knowledge, contacts and experience in the country so that it can service and support brands like yours. Our team is independent and flexible, made up of Chinese and international staff that live and breathe luxury in China every day. The services we offer luxury brands are very bespoke and personal, tailored to their needs, which is more important in today’s market than it has ever been before.

FDKG provides the following services to those organisations selling to Chinese luxury consumers based within and outside of the country

  • Market opportunity assessment reports
  • Targeted bespoke consumer focused events
  • Sinocizing your offer and marketing collateral development
  • Media relations and management
  • Luxury retail service auditing
  • Luxury service training
  • The Luxury Insights China reports

We are unique; working on both the consumer and brand sides of the market, linking the two across our services; from regular mystery shopping of luxury stores, to surveying consumers in terms of their spending habits, and planning and executing targeted, niche and exclusive consumer events to luxury retail service training that Chinese consumers have begun to expect and brands are now investing in.

Our staff are made up of highly experienced and educated Chinese and international individuals who work within functional teams to deliver our products and services. A single client may only require the skills of a single team, but in many cases, their needs are met with a multi-disciplinary approach involving business consultants, researchers, analysts and trainers.


FDKG offers a unique market intelligence service, which is driven by a combination of robust understanding of the international luxury goods sector together with intimate local Chinese market insight. The multi-lingual team, based in Shanghai and London, has offered Thomas Lyte limitless support as we ourselves prepare our road map for an Asian launch. Added to this few organizations can match their detailed and hands-on appreciation of the burgeoning HNWI's segment. Thomas Lyte would not hesitate to recommend the FDKG to any luxury player who is serious about entering the Chinese sector.

I had a very insightful luxury ethnographic safari with FDKG. They have great contacts in China, they love it, and apparently China loves them. That gives FDKG a unique opportunity to develop deep insights into what is going on there, and then share it with western companies such as Pernod Ricard. Even though we are well installed in Asia and China in particular, and have a lot of contacts and research studies ourselves, this type of intimate learning was invaluable for me.
