Founder and CEO of The Business of Fashion

Imran Amed Biography

Bringing a unique understanding of the creative and commercial sides of fashion, Imran Amed has emerged as one of the global fashion industry’s leading writers, thinkers and commentators, and is founder, CEO and editor-in-chief of The Business of Fashion (BoF), which began from Imran’s sofa in 2007 as a passion project.

From the start, BoF sparked a new kind of fashion dialogue, exploring the key drivers of an industry undergoing unprecedented change. Social media and new technology were about to explode onto the fashion landscape, new markets in China, India and Brazil were rapidly rising in importance, and the financial crisis of 2008 created a step-change in consumer values and expectations. The fashion industry was emerging as a force in popular culture and there was much to analyse, dissect and explore. From its humble beginnings as a blog, today BoF has grown into the pre-eminent platform for opening, informing and connecting the global fashion community.

In 2013, after financing BoF independently, Imran raised a seed funding round, followed by a Series A round of funding in 2015, from a group of investors including Index Ventures, LVMH, Carmen Busquets and Felix Capital, who together hold a minority stake in the business.

Imran is an Associate Lecturer at Central St Martin’s College of Art & Design. He has sat on international fashion juries at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Belgium, the Festival d’Hyères in France, and Who Is On Next in Italy.

Imran has been named in Fast Company’s annual list of the Most Creative People in Business, British GQ’s list of the 100 Most Influential Men in Britain, Indian GQ’s list of the 50 Most Influential Global Indians, British Vogue’s list of 25 New Fashion Faces to Watch, and Wired UK’s list of the 100 most influential figures in Britain’s digital economy. In 2014, Imran was the youngest ever recipient of the Desautels Management Achievement Award at McGill University. In 2015, he was named Honorary Professor of Fashion Business at the Glasgow Caledonian University. 

Previously, Imran was a management consultant at McKinsey & Co. He has an MBA from Harvard Business School and a B.Com from McGill University. He holds British and Canadian citizenship.
