Emily Abraham is co-founder of Love Luxury, which has become one of the most trusted names in the UK ‘pre-loved’ luxury market.
But the self-made entrepreneur, known as the Billionaire’s Wife online, is using her social media popularity to speak openly about her own hardships and turbulent upbringing, while giving a platform to others trying to help those in need.
“I love talking to people and hearing their stories,” Abraham says. “There were a lot of people I was desperate to meet and bring attention to. When you’ve been through harder life experiences than most it’s good to highlight other people who are helping those in need and educating the public about different walks of life and the issues people face. I’m lucky I have a platform to be able to do that.”

Launching earlier this year, The Love Luxury Podcast has welcomed a range of guests, from experts linked to her previous career in the beauty industry discussing concerns around aesthetics courses and safety issues, to Love & Hip Hop’s Chrissy Monroe, who set up the charity Survive to Thrive Global for women experiencing domestic violence.
Abraham also knows what it’s like to experience the crueller side of social media. She says: “You have to have a thick skin to be on social media sometimes and negative comments are an inevitable part of having a large following. The opinions of people I don’t know do not bother me.”
