Fashion Icon John Bartlett Dresses Up FT.com; FT.com Introduces Monthly Style Into the Time Off Channel.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 20, 2000
Don't know the difference between Calvin Klein and Calvin and Hobbes? Is the office still emailing their friends a picture of your last casual Friday outfit as a joke? Coming this October, help is on the way, as FT.com, the global internet portal of the Financial Times, is introducing internationally-renowned fashion designer John Bartlett to the FT.com site.
Beginning in October, Mr. Bartlett will be contributing his fashion sense and know-how in a monthly style/fashion column courtesy of Time Off, the lifestyle channel of FT.com. His periodic column will cover a range of subjects relating to the fashion and style industry.
"John Bartlett will bring a sharp and introspective take on the state of fashion to the Time Off Style page," said Paul Maidment, editor of FT.com. "As a former sociology major who now makes sociological statements through his cutting-edge ready-to-wear, there is no one better to explain the culture of fashion to Financial Times readers."
"When FT.com first approached me to write a monthly column, I have to admit I was a bit puzzled at how to represent the fashion community to a business-oriented audience," said John Bartlett. "However, I was surprised by the fresh look and approach of FT.com. It will be a unique experience to write about the goings-on in fashion not traditionally covered by the daily trade publications and present it to the business professional in a voice that is more from a personal, ironic point of view. I can't wait to start typing away!"
