Natalie Massenet

As the founder of fashion giant Net-A-Porter and chairman of the British Fashion Council, Natalie Massenet is one of the most influential voices in fashion today. Starting out working as a journalist at Tatler, alongside Isabella Blow and Lucy Yeomans, Massenet hit upon the idea of a magazine-style website offering designer fashion. Today the Net-A-Porter group employs 2,500 people worldwide, and has been dubbed “the barometer of fashion” by the Financial Times, while the British Fashion Council continues to bring homegrown fashion talent to the global stage.
