The Outnet is one of fashion’s most successful e-tailers, and a key division within Yoox Net-A-Porter (YNAP), the fashion industry’s online store leader. We met its MD, Emma Mortimer, to hear her latest plans.
We caught up with Phair this weekend in London to discuss her plans for the BFC; her take on the future of fashion; how Brexit might impact London designers and British brands; and the BFC’s new plans with Google.
Q1 wasn't an undiluted triumph for Yoox Net-A-Porter as the off-price business proved a little slow. But full-price Net-A-Porter and designer e-stores powered ahead, even though exchange rates had a negative effect.
2017 was a good year for YNAP as the high-end e-tailer turned in a record sales performance. It saw net revenues rising 16.9% on a currency-neutral basis, or 11.8% as reported, to hit a massive €2.1 billion.
