Jay Shetty sits down with Imran Amed to talk about his journey in the fashion industry. With a love for business, his career had an illustrious start with Harvard Business school & later his job at McKinsey. Both of which nurtured his analytical skills, but left him unfulfilled and in some cases even encouraged to diminish or hide his true self to fit in. As a creative at heart, he was able to break through to create the leading platform connecting millions of people across the globe through fashion.

As founder, editor-in-chief and CEO of The Business of Fashion, Imran Amed is considered one of the fashion industry’s leading writers, thinkers and commentators. Fascinated by the industry’s potent blend of creativity and business, he began BoF as a blog in 2007,which has since grown into the pre-eminent global fashion industry resource serving a 6 million strong community from over 200 countries. Amed has been named in Fast Company’s annual list of the Most Creative People in Business, British GQ’s list of the 100 Most Influential Men in Britain and Wired UK’s list of the 100 most influential figures in Britain’s digital economy.
