From Mulberry to Vivienne Westwood, the online boutique Net-a-Porter.com offers busy women the latest fashions from top designers. The London company launched a new website this year called Theoutnet.com, which sells discounted designer brands from previous seasons. The Net-a-Porter.com website features an online fashion magazine with contributors from the likes of Tatler and Vogue, and the company says the site is viewed by more than 2m women each month. Founder and chairman Natalie Massenet was awarded an MBE for services to the fashion industry in June this year, and has overseen sales growth of 57% a year from £21.3m in 2006 to £81.5m in 2009.
