What is the BoF 500?

The BoF 500 is the definitive professional index of the people shaping the $2.4 trillion fashion industry, hand-selected by the editors of The Business of Fashion, based on hundreds of nominations received from current BoF 500 members, extensive data analysis and research.


Frédéric Sanchez is one of fashion’s most respected show music producers. He is the go-to source for cool, cerebral and minimal show music. Sanchez’s esteemed career began at suitably lofty heights, mixing a soundtrack, or rather ‘oral tableau’ for designer Martin Margiela for the Maison Martin Margiela show in 1988.

Sanchez has now worked with fashion’s top brands, including Hermès, Prada, Valentino, Balmain, Chloé, Roger Vivier, Marc Jacobs , Alexander Wang , Miu Miu and Ann Demeulemeester . Sanchez told Port magazine, “My music works with a minimal aesthetic, it sits alongside the collection. I like it to have a rounded sound, and a pure feeling. It adds quality, like the sound system in a beautiful car.”

Sanchez was commissioned by Miuccia Prada to create an installation for the brand's flagship in Tokyo. Sanchez created a ‘sound shower’ with Herzog & de Meuron, some of his many artistic collaborators; others include Louise Bourgeois, Larry Clark and Jack Pierson.

Sanchez has also collaborated with the Gainsbourg family, to curate "Gainsbourg 2008," a reflective of Serge Gainsbourg exhibited at Paris’ Cité de la Musique. In recent years Sanchez has started directing films of his own, embarking on his independent film project, Le Soldat Sans Visage, in 2010.
