The British Fashion Council has appointed three more executives to its board; Dylan Jones, GQ editor; José Neves, founder and CEO of Farfetch; and David Pemsel, CEO of the Guardian Media Group.
The executive board was originally put together in 2009, as a bid to keep industry patrons, partners and the media informed about movements and developments in the British fashion industry. Other members include professionals from some of the biggest brands, publications and institutions in the UK, such as Vogue, Burberry and Central Saint Martins.
Speaking of the three individuals’ appointment, Chairman of the BFC, Natalie Massenet said:
“These are three strategic appointments, Dylan as the voice of menswear, an area of significant growth; David for his expertise in building international audiences through digital platforms and José, a tech entrepreneur and retail disrupter. All three are leaders in their field, innovators and strategists, and will play significant roles in ensuring London leads in design, business, technology and communication in fashion.”
