Occupation CEO and Publisher of Fashion Net Inc.

Stig Harder (born April 5, 1969) is the founder of Fashion Net, Lumiere Magazine and the co-founder of Holofono. Born in Flekkefjord, Norway, he graduated from Art Center College of Design,[1] Pasadena, California, in 1991.



An entrepreneur who in the early 1990s saw Internet's potential as a global mass medium, Harder, 25 years-old at the time, launched Fashion Net from Paris in January 1995.

Six months later, he launched Lumiere Magazine, the world's first exclusively online fashion magazine. After meeting with Chanel's CEO and the President of the Chambre Syndicale, the governing body of French fashion, Lumiere became the first website ever to gain access to the ready-to-wear fashion shows in Paris, France.

Both Fashion Net and Lumiere soon gained worldwide recognition in the media, the first mention in Harper's Bazaar in July 1995 and then CNN, BBC, Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Vogue, ELLE, The New York Times, and countless more publications and television stations across the world.

Harder thus pioneered the field and helped inspire the entire fashion industry to go online. His Internet properties have also attracted fashion's top advertisers, including Christian Dior, Shiseido, Adidas, Swarovski, Diesel, Vogue, ELLE, and Bang & Olufsen.
