Natalie Massenet and her Empire
Net-A-Porter founder Natalie Massenet
Natalie Massenet was born in Los Angeles in May 1965, the daughter of American journalist, Bob Rooney and Chanel model Barbara Jones. Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, is where she spent her early childhood before moving back to Los Angeles with her father. Massenet started working as a fashion editor at Women's Wear Daily in 1993 and later at Tatler in 1996. During a visit to the Noting Hill Carnival she met investment banker Arnaud Massenet and a month later she moved from LA to be with him.
In 1998, whilst freelancing, she set up Net-a-Porter. Little did she know that in April 2010 she would sell her share to Swiss luxury group Richemont for an estimated £350m. She remains as Net-a-Porter’s Executive Chairman and in 2010 she announced the birth of a new website entitled Mr.Porter – Net-a-Porter’s male counterpart. Meanwhile in her private life, Massenet got married and became a mum of two girls Isabella and Eva, who love to dress up.
The Styleintro team heard that Massenet is soon to be named the new chairman of the British Fashion Council but she will not be running the show until some time next year. The BFC stated that any new chairman is to be approved by the Executive Board, and until then nothing can be officially announced. We contacted Massenet’s communications team who refused to comment on the rumours.
Either way, Massenet continues to work hard, think big and visualize an interesting and challenging future and was awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire) by Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth in 2009 for her work in fashion. Natalie Massenet is a true inspiration to many
