Business of Fashion: Published in the Financial Times

By
  • Imran Amed

We are excited to share the news that our first published article appears in today's Financial Times.

The article links the shift in luxury goods production out of Italy to a recent spree of investments and licensing agreements that have taken place between emerging brands and established Italian houses with high quality production facilities. These deals have provided young brands like Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam and Sophia Kokosalaki with access to top class production, solving one of the major headaches of launching a high-end fashion business.

It appears in one of my favourite supplements for getting the low-down on happenings in the fashion business: Financial Times - The Business of Fashion. There are some very interesting reads, including Vanessa Friedman's Q&A with Dana Thomas, author of the much-discussed book "Deluxe", my friend Robb Young's take on the new movers and shakers in the fashion business, and Godfrey Deeny's revelations about fashion's power brokers in the Middle East.

If you can get your hand on the supplement, it's definitely worth a read. Unfortunately, none of the content appears on the FT.com site as yet, but in the meantime, please click here to have a look at the article on Italian investments.
