Farfetch served its millionth customer this year – quite an achievement given José Neves founded the company just eight years ago. Neves said he may try to float the firm, which was valued at around $1.5bn (£1.2bn) in a fundraising round this year, in the next two to three years once a phase of high investment is completed.

This year, he expanded the original Farfetch proposition with a service called Black & White that allows luxury brands to trade directly on its website or through their own full-price transactional sites.

It also introduced Farfetch API, which allows brands with existing ecommerce websites to connect their infrastructure with its own to plug into its extensive logistics and delivery networks, direct fulfilment from stores and integration of same-day delivery across 10 global cities. We expect Neves to rise even further up the ranks in 2017.
