The white, bright space on the top floor of a building just north of Oxford Circus resembles the sort of office you might imagine in a creative-visualisation technique: spacious rooms filled with stylish, purposeful-looking men and women sitting around pristine work surfaces. I hazard a guess that a "no eating at your desk" policy is observed but I don't get round to asking because Imran Amed is in full flight.
In mid-September, during another busy day at London Fashion Week, the fashion world made its way from the Tom Ford show and a cocktail party at 10 Downing Street over to dinner.
This is Karl Moore of the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University, talking management for The Globe and Mail. We are delighted to have Imran Amed here [founder and editor of The Business of Fashion blog]. He was given [a Desautel Management Achievement Award] from the MUS, the Management Undergraduate Society, one of the youngest award winners.
