GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Existing investors Advent Venture Partners, Index Ventures and e.ventures have also participated in the fundraising.

José Neves, founder and chief rxecutive of Farfetch, said: "This investment will fuel our entry to new markets while assisting our growth in existing ones. Our goal to build a unique curated global franchise in online designer fashion is brought several steps closer through the exciting involvement of Condé Nast."

James Bilefield, president of Condé Nast International Digital, added: "As the leading multimedia publisher connecting people to the fashion brands they love, this investment underlines our commitment to extend the scope of our activities and back great entrepreneurs. It follows the recent news of our involvement with the e-commerce businesses Monoqi and Renesim in Germany." 

As part of the investment, Bilefield will join the Farfetch board.  

Launched in 2008, Farfetch brings together 250 fashion boutiques from around the world. The company currently has 150,000 customers in over 140 countries.
