Not a Football Town Whose rapists do not even get a slap on the wrist if they are good enough! #Winning is everything @ FSU just ask the girl that Jameis got!

And of course, Natalie Massenet, the Queen of the Millenial fashion entrepreneurs, started Net-a-Porter in 2000 from a spare bedroom in her London flat. Today, the business employs 2600 staff, is owned by luxury goods stable Richemont, and turnover for the Net-a-Porter group which now includes outlet boutique The Outnet and menswear e-tailer Mr Porter grew 18% to 434 million last year. She knew who her customer was, because she believed she and her social circle would adopt her vision for online designer shopping. In the early days, she focused on building relationships with the brands she wanted to stock in her e-boutique, and on developing and delivering a high-end customer experience. This focus on the core elements of her trading operation reaped massive rewards for Massenet, who now heads up the British Fashion Council and is mentoring a generation of new designers with her sound business sense and inspired plans for fashion industry forums linking creative talent with savvy commercial minds. I want to see more small enterprises benefit from the kind of expertise that nurtures start-ups so they grow into successful global businesses. Its not just about cash injections, but about the management of those funds: we need to instill an understanding of balance sheets and budgets into fashion students right from the word go, or at least begin the process early of pairing them with partners who can develop a solid strategy for their enterprise.

I think when organisers are in it to make a buck, to do it as a profit centre, that doesnt work to me. I think it has to come from the purest place of creative talent that needs a platform that needs to be seen and heard, says Mallis, speaking after an industry luncheon on Thursday ahead of the runway shows this weekend. That raw talent then needs infrastructure. You need someone to build it, someone to manage it, and you need outreach to invite the right people to come to it and you need help to market it and publicise it. Whats really nice in this day and age, and was not when I first started fashion week, are all these new programmes and incubators and mentorship programmes, schools and design districts. Thats all pretty fabulous.
