FARFETCH Limited is the leading global platform for the luxury fashion industry. Founded in 2007 by José Neves for the love of fashion, and launched in 2008, FARFETCH began as an e-commerce marketplace for luxury boutiques around the world. Today the FARFETCH Marketplace connects customers in over 190 countries with items from more than 50 countries and nearly 1,300 of the world’s best brands, boutiques and department stores, delivering a truly unique shopping experience and access to the most extensive selection of luxury on a single platform. FARFETCH’s additional businesses include Farfetch Platform Solutions, which services enterprise clients with e-commerce and technology capabilities; Browns and Stadium Goods, which offer luxury products to consumers; and New Guards, a platform for the development of global fashion brands. FARFETCH also invests in innovations such as its Store of the Future augmented retail solution, and develops key technologies, business solutions, and services for the luxury fashion industry.
An integral part of FARFETCH’s mission is to also become the platform for good in luxury fashion, fostering positive change and growth in our industry. This collaboration with Central Saint Martins is a natural fit and is also a really exciting opportunity for us to be able to support the next generation of creatives, both financially and for academic merit. As part of this partnership, students will have access to panel talks with key FARFETCH stakeholders, work together on a consultancy-style creative brief and also have a dedicated FARFETCH scholarship. We're thrilled to be partnering together in this way.
