Who we are

Farfetch is unlike anything in the world of fashion and technology.

Our mission: to revolutionize the way the world shops.

To do it, we need innovators. People who challenge convention and dare to dream.

We’ve gone from a start-up to a billion dollar business. But we’re not done yet. Far from it.

Be bold.

Be brilliant.

Together, we can be extraordinary


We have rapidly grown into a truly global company since our launch in 2008 and we’re continuing to grow. Our family now includes over 400 independent fashion boutiques across Europe, North and South America and Asia; we demonstrate our ‘Think Global’ value in everything we do.

We are a global team of over 1,000 people and have offices based in London, New York, LA, Porto, Lisbon, Guimaraes, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Moscow, Hong Kong & Tokyo.
