The leading fashion news site Business of Fashion just released its list of Top 500 for the third time. Finding your name in amidst this ranking is the fashion equivalent of being knighted, as all of the industry’s most important movers & shakers as well as the influencers & multiplicators are on it. Even when taken with a grain of salt, it’s interesting to see who’s still undisputed and who’s celebrating their entrance onto the list. Newcomers, that are not to be missed, are the following: Gucci’s much celebrated creative director Alessandro Michele, Amal Clooney – arguably this years’ smartest and chicest women to be lauded by the (fashion)press, and, how politically progressive, Instagram’s inventor Kevin Systrom (where would we be without him and his fantastic ideas?). An event was hosted during London Fashion Week parallel to the release of this impressive list, with a majority of those listed in attendance. A accompanying print version will be published in the coming days. We’re excited!
