Timeline of Natalie Massenet
Massenet is still very much involved in online luxury as she’s joined the online luxury platform, Farfetch in February 2017 as non executive co-chairman. On the day of the announcement, Jose Neves very enthusiastically said “I have always been a huge huge fan of Natalie. She was a pioneer that started this whole thing for the rest of us. I’ve always had huge admirations. I actually found that the thought was actually mutual. She loved the Farfetch model and the brand DNA. She got more and more excited about the business.”
She also co-founded Imaginary Ventures in 2017 with Nick Brown, formerly of 14W Ventures. Imaginary is a Venture Capital Fund that invests in early–stage opportunities at the intersection of retail and technology in Europe and the US. They’ve already invested in millennial beauty brand Glossier created by Emily Weiss, Khloe Kardashian’s denim company Good American, sustainable US label Reformation, tights company Heist, pop up retail company Appear Here and many more.
Ahead of a merger with the Yoox Group, Massenet stepped down as the executive chairman of Net-a-Porter in September 2015.
In early 2014, it launched a print magazine called Porter, with an associated app and digital version of the magazine.
As of September 2013, Net-a-Porter employed 2,600 people in the UK, US and Hong Kong, with further offices in Shanghai and fulfilment centres on the outskirts of three cities. Net-a-Porter Group is now estimated as a £350m company.
Massenet took over as chairman of the British Fashion Council in 2013. In this honorary role, which normally carries a three-year commitment, she is responsible for steering London Fashion Week and overseeing the Council’s other activities to promote British fashion design in the UK and overseas. An article in 2013, suggested she has boosted London’s reputation as an international fashion centre. She stepped down of her role in May 2018, replaced by Stephanie Phair, Chief Strategy Officer at Farfetch.
The company launched a fashion discount site The Outnet in 2009 and in 2010 Massenet sold Net-a-Porter to Swiss luxury goods holding company Richemont for a figure estimated at £50m, remaining involved with the company as executive chairman and an investor. In 2011, a menswear site Mr Porter was established; beauty was added to the site in early 2013 under the leadership of David Olsen.
The concept behind the site was to be able to click on an image of an outfit within a magazine format and buy it. In an interview for The Wall Street Journal, Massenet said that she’d walked away from her dream career in journalism to take the idea forward and it took her several years to realise that she had created a magazine format for the 21st century. Initially, the idea of selling high fashion online was unappealing to designers and investors, who couldn’t imagine selling goods without a physical retail outlet, however in 2001 Massenet persuaded Roland Mouret to sell his first collection via the site. By 2004, the company was profitable and won the best fashion shop award at the British Fashion Awards.
Massenet founded Net-a-Porter in 2000 in London as a website in magazine format for selling designer fashion. The idea came about after Massenet was attempting to source products online for a fashion shoot. The business was launched from Massenet’s flat in Chelsea and she raised the £1.2m start-up costs with the help of her then-husband. Initially the business operation was so low-key that Net-a-Porter’s trademark black delivery boxes were stacked up in the bath.
Massenet began her career as a fashion journalist at Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) in 1993. She then moved on to Tatler in the UK, where she worked as assistant to Isabella Blow and her colleagues included Lucy Yeomans. She left to freelance in 1998.
