Last week, The Business of Fashion, an invaluable fashion news portal founded by Imran Amed, has launched #BoF500
: a live, visual index of the 500 people shaping the global fashion industry, from all sorts of mediums starting with designers and continuing with models, photographers, stylists, makeup artists, media members, investors, entrepreneurs and so on. As Mr Amed puts it: ‘They are blue-chip titans who helm the industry’s mega-brands and daring young upstarts whose fashion stars are fast rising. They are disruptive entrepreneurs building the next wave of $1 billion start-ups and opinion-leaders whose points of view attract followers, online and off. They are power princesses, chic sheikhs and supermodels, as well as discreet, behind-the-scenes catalysts who spot and support the industry’s top talents.’
Among huge names, such as: Anna Wintour (Editor-In-Chief Vogue Us), Bill Cunningham (photographer), Emmanuelle Alt (Editor-In-Chief Vogue Paris), Stefan Persson (H&M Chairman) or Patrick Demarchelier (photographer), we were extremely excited to discover 5 of our curated designers: Dries Van Noten, Karen Walker, Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung and The Row! Congratulations to all of them, it is all well deserved indeed!
You can access it online here, as for ourselves, we can’t wait to get our hands on a copy which Roxana is bringing from Paris! Click continue to see the promoting video. À bientôt!
