François-Henri Pinault, Virgil Abloh, Kalpona Akter and Yara Shahidi Cover the #BoF500 Special Print Edition No. 12
For the sixth annual BoF 500, celebrating the people shaping the global fashion industry, we focused our lens on change agents: the pioneers, disruptors, innovators and activists who are addressing fashion’s most critical issues head on.
At a time when fashion has deep-rooted problems to solve, we decided to focus this year’s BoF 500 special print issue on change agents: the pioneers, disruptors, innovators and activists who are addressing some of the industry’s most critical issues head on.
They are executives embedding deeply held values at the heart of their business models like François-Henri Pinault; boundary-breaking designers setting an example for others to follow like Virgil Abloh; activists fighting for social justice; journalists holding the industry accountable for its misdeeds; biologists inventing new sustainable materials; and creatives embracing genuine inclusivity.
Also included with the issue is our directory of the sixth annual BoF 500, a hand-selected index of the people shaping the global fashion industry. This year, we have added 96 new names, many of whom are agents of change themselves.
