LONDON, United Kingdom — When we first started envisioning the BoF 500 back in 2013, we had one key thing in mind: collecting together all of the people who shape our industry in an easy-to-use digital index, from behind-the-scenes people catalysing change in the fields of fashion education to high-powered agents for top creative talents to CEOs and the top retailers from around the world.
Since then, the BoF 500 has grown into a global community of people and this year, for the third time, with the support of our partners QIC Global Real Estate, we hosted the biggest Gala Dinner yet, as always at the London EDITION, with more than 100 BoF 500 members and friends of BoF flying in from all corners of the earth and coming together in one room, for one night only. With that many talented people from all over, the energy was electric.
I'm happy to share this short video from that evening to share some of that energy with you. This year's BoF 500 print edition, featuring our cover star Kate Moss, will be released on October 4th during Paris Fashion Week (available for pre-order here). Stay tuned!
