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.


Since founding luxury Los Angeles-based concept boutique Maxfield, founder and creative director Tommy Perse has gained international renown for his chic and avant garde aesthetic, represented through hand-picked edits of luxury apparel, rare art books, vintage luggage and real human skulls. 

Launched the store in the early 70’s, Perse pioneered brands such as Giorgio Armani , Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garçons in the Californian state, earning instant acclaim and a cult following from discerning local shoppers. The store currently offers high-end labels such as Rick Owens , Sacai, Gucci and Saint Laurent alongside jewellery, watches, furniture and books. The store is regularly frequented by high-profile personalities.

Initially launched in West Hollywood, Perse has since founded a second boutique on Melrose Avenue and another in Malibu.
