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.


Lu Yan was one of the first internationally renowned Chinese models, and walked for brands including Christian Dior, Christian Lacroix and Alexander McQueen. After retiring from full-time modelling, she spent two years as a guest editor for Bazaar Men China.

In 2013, she launched womenswear brand Comme Moi. Despite having no design experience, Yan’s collections earned celebrity clients including Gong Li and Li Bingbing. In 2015, the brand opened its first flagship in Shanghai and is stocked by 14 multi-brand retailers, including Lane Crawford and Dong Liang. The ex-model has 4.3 million followers on Weibo and Vogue China editor-in-chief  Angelica Cheung is known to be a big supporter of the brand.
