Speaking of the signings José Neves, CEO of Farfetch, commented:
“Australia is one of our top five customer markets, so I’m delighted that we can now look to Australian boutiques as suppliers. The Australian fashion landscape has so many exciting boutiques
and designers that are relevant internationally and at Farfetch
we can really help them to reach a global audience.”

The new boutiques that have been signed are Le Louvre, The New Guard and Elle. Farfetch has also teamed up with flagship designer stores Alex Perry, Bassike, Dion Lee, Scanlan Theodore and Ginger & Smart.

Le Louvre is the country's premier destination for a unique specialised edit of the best international fashion brands, while French-inspired Adelaide has a dynamic line-up of luxury designers. Elle has been running since 1969 and pioneered
the sale of international labels in the Southern Hemisphere.

This spring, Farfetch secured a Series E round of investment of
$86m, led by Digital Sky Technologies, putting the total amount raised by the company at over $195m.
