Success in e-commerce is what Rashid Alabbar is known for. He initially co-founded Sivvi.com, a website that sells clothing, footwear and accessories from more than 200 high-street, sports, beauty and lifestyle brands. He has since moved into luxury online retail through a joint venture with Yoox Net-a-Porter (YNAP), which owns six multi-brand websites including Net-a-Porter.com, via Alabbar’s Symphony Investments (part of Alabbar Enterprises), which Alabbar chairs.
