LONDON, United Kingdom — The Business of Fashion is pleased to announce the launch of FASHION PIONEERS, a series of live interview events with the industry’s most interesting operators, set amidst a fashion landscape that’s being radically reshaped by the forces of digital revolution and rapid globalisation in a post-recessionary economy.
I am delighted to reveal that our first FASHION PIONEER will be Jefferson Hack, Editorial Director of Dazed Group, a true industry leader, known for his great intellectual curiosity, thirst for innovation and demonstrated support for emerging creative talent in music, fashion and art.
The impact of Jefferson’s work has been felt across the fashion world, online and off, for almost two decades. Since he co-founded Dazed & Confused in 1992 with the photographer Rankin, the monthly magazine has become a staple of global youth culture. His sister publications AnOther Magazine and AnOther Man pioneered the concept of a bi-annual fashion bible and are amongst the top selling British fashion magazines abroad, while DazedDigital.com has become a laboratory of digital experimentation and that BoF passion, Fashion 2.0.
We hope you will join us for this very special and intimate gathering of the BoF community to learn from a great pioneer in the business of fashion.
