Natalie Massenet founded online fashion portal Net-a-Porter in 2000 when she was trying to find designer goods for a fashion shoot. Net-a-Porter sells clothes using a layout similar to traditional fashion magazines.  Before starting the site, she worked as a fashion model in Tokyo, assistant at Tatler, fashion stylist, and also worked with photographer Mario Testino. Massenet has gone on to become Chairman of the British Fashion Council, and she received an MBE in 2009 for services to the fashion industry.
