"Natalie was one of my major inspirations back in 2008 when I was launching Farfetch so it's unbelievable to have her on board now", Neves told The Telegraph earlier today.

Massenet, who departed from Net-a-Porter in 2015 following a merger with Yoox, will now serve as a non-executive co-chairman of the online luxury fashion retailer Farfetch.

Massenet was the founder of the Net-a-Porter group and chairman of the British Fashion Council, and has been deemed one of the most 100 influential people by Time magazine.

Now, she's also a non-executive Co-Chairman on the Farfetch Board of Directors.

"Over the past 18 months my entrepreneurial drive, and passion for how innovation in technology can transform the future of luxury remains undiminished", she wrote.

In the year 2000 she founded what would grow out to be a pioneer in the world of online fashion retail. The tech and logistics platforms that power the best e-commerce today have new decentralised business models. "If I were starting an e-commerce company today, I would do it very differently".

Founded by José Neves back in 2008, Farfetch is one of Britain's fairytale businesses. Farfetch aggregates the most handsome fashion curated by the world's best boutiques and designer stores with the widest selection of styles into ONE easy-to-shop and brilliantly conceived API-enabled platform.
