Some breaking news for you this morning, as it’s just been announced that Natalie Massenet will become the new Chairman of the British Fashion Council from January 1st next year.
Natalie will take over from Harold Tillman, who served as Chairman for nearly five years.
“Not only do we have some of the best creative talent based in London but there are also great British designers working in some of the most high profile luxury design houses in the world,” Natalie said.
“We also have the best understanding of what our industry contributes to the UK economy and what a significant player the British Fashion Industry is and can continue to be. My experience is in merging extraordinary creative content with innovative global commerce.
“From January, together with Caroline Rush and her team, I aim to apply these lessons to my new role, a role I take incredibly seriously.”
Congratulations to Natalie on her new job! We’re really looking forward to seeing what she will bring to the table!
