Issue 05: Reinvention & BoF 500 2015
The Business of Fashion is proud to release REINVENTION, our special print edition also containing this year's BoF 500. The issue focuses on the people, brands and places rebooting to adapt to market forces, new technologies, shifting consumer behaviour and a fragile global economy. The cover story sees Marco Bizzarri, CEO of Gucci, sit for an exclusive interview with BoF founder Imran Amed to discuss how he and his newly appointed creative director turned the Italian fashion house around in a matter of months to make it the most talked-about brand this year. Carine Roitfeld talks about her post-Vogue metamorphosis into fashion's foremost multi-tasker - a media mogul, fashion designer fragrance inventor and doting grandmother. Plus, there are stories looking at the growing influence of Los Angeles as a fashion hub, the rise of new digital influencers and the race for market share in fashion e-commerce - a category that reinvented fashion retail and continues to evolve.
Don't forget the long-awaited BoF 500 which features 103 new additions who are shaping the global fashion industry. Once again, we have canvassed the industry and looked to our current members of the BoF 500 community to compile the list.
The edition is available to buy in PDF format only.
