Description

Join us for a evening of discussion about what it takes to build the world’s most successful online fashion retailing platform with the founder of Net-a-Porter Dame Natalie Massenet in conversation with Judy Olian, Dean of the UCLA Anderson School of Managmenet.

Natalie Massenet was born in Los Angeles, California, and spent her early childhood in Paris, before moving back to LA where she attended UCLA, studying English Literature. After graduating, Natalie assisted at Italian magazine Moda, where she worked with the then emerging photographer Mario Testino and pursued a career as a successful fashion journalist. She founded Net-a-Porter in 2000 in London. The idea came about after Massenet was attempting to source products online for a fashion shoot. The business was launched from Massenet's flat in Chelsea. In 2010 Massenet sold Net-a-Porter to Swiss luxury goods holding company Richemont for a figure estimated at £50m.

In 2013, Massenet was made a Woman of the Year by US Glamour magazine. In 2014, she was named as one of the 100 most influential people by Time. She was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in the 2016 New Year Honours for services to the fashion and retail industries.

Tickets - £15 for UCLA Anderson and UCLA Alumni and alumni from other UC Campuses, £20 for Guests and £10 for students. Tickets include Drinks and Canapes.

This event is open to alumni from all UC campuses
