Blog: Leonie BarrieFashion fund

Leonie Barrie | 12 March 2007

Jane Shepherdson's next move after leaving Topshop last year was always going to be eagerly anticipated, so all credit to her that she’s moved into philanthropic circles before commercial ones. Having herself had a stellar career in fashion, almost single-handedly driving Topshop’s profit from GBP9m in 1998 to GBP110m last year, she’s now decided it’s time to help support new emerging talent. Of course Shepherdson won’t be the only board member at the Fashion Enterprise Fund, but her presence and reputation will undoubtedly raise its profile and add fuel to its mission to make London a major international fashion capital.
