Issue 08: Kate Moss Inc. & BoF 500 2016
The Business of Fashion is proud to release our annual BoF 500 special print issue. This year, we have taken a veritable tour of the world, from the office towers of Tokyo to the shopping malls of Mumbai to a tiny island in Greece, where we sat down with cover star Kate Moss for her first ever business interview. In a global exclusive, the supermodel revealed that since surprising the industry by leaving Storm Models, she has been quietly setting up her own talent agency and building a lifestyle business. We also talked to Tory Burch about her ambitious new activewear venture and met with Uniqlo boss Tadashi Yanai to discuss the 23 management principles that enabled him to turn a single men’s tailoring store into a casualwear giant turning over more than $15 billion per year. Our latest issue also contains stories on Nike’s journey from sweatshops to sustainability; budding media mogul Miroslava Duma; London-based couture business Ralph & Russo; the Indian fashion market; and Matthew Moneypenny’s new super-agency Great Bowery.
The special edition comes in two colors: pink and yellow, distributed at random. The issue also comes with a collectible BoF 500 directory, highlighting this year's new entrants, as well as the complete list of the people shaping the global fashion industry in 2016.
