Note from Chris
‘It was in March 2018 at one of Europe’s top media conferences, The Digital Innovators’ Summit, in Berlin that I met an interesting entrepreneur, Sander Kooger. He talked me through his idea for This Is Fashion. The project sounded ambitious and it sounded exciting. As I had spent more than 25 years in international magazine publishing I could see immediately that his business idea was capturing a real need for both the consumer and media owner.
For the consumer the sheer depth and breadth this one-stop fashion platform promises together with its ease of use is just so enticing. From the media owner’s point of view This Is Fashion is a simple partnership and a no-risk source of new revenue. In particular it opens up the potential to monetise a brand’s content archive, offering an extremely lucrative high-margin return. A win-win for everyone involved.
And so I offered to help Sander, and his co-founder, Michael Brenninkmeijer, meet the key people in the fashion magazine world of New York, Paris, London and Milan. It’s a journey that has started well, and one that I’m sure will have a wonderful conclusion.’
