Natalie Massenet extends term as British Fashion Council chair

Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet has extended her term as chairman of the British Fashion Council for another year.

Massenet, who was made a Dame in the New Year Honours List, will continue to head up the BFC executive board’s strategy and act as an industry ambassador for the organisation. She became chair of the BFC in January 2013, replacing Harold Tillman.

The former magazine editor founded Net-a-Porter Group in 2000 and turned it into one of the most significant luxury etailers worldwide. She exited the company last year following a merger with Yoox Group.

Massenet said: “I am immensely honoured and excited to be staying for another year at the helm of the BFC. Over the past three years we have worked hard to deliver on our strategy and promise to build the profile of our industry and our businesses worldwide.

”Britain has some of the world’s most creative and innovative designers, and this is seen through the brands showing at London Fashion Week, London Collections Men, and British talent at the helm of global luxury brands.”

Caroline Rush, chief executive of the BFC, said: ”We are delighted that Natalie will be staying for another year as we continue to develop the role the BFC plays in championing our sector, tackling challenges and developing opportunities for businesses to grow.”
