Indvik will oversee the FT's coverage of fashion and style. She will also curate the Business of Luxury Summit, an annual event that brings together some of the biggest names in global luxury and fashion. Indvik succeeds and will work closely with Jo Ellison, the newly appointed editor of How to Spend It, and report to Alec Russell, editor of FT Weekend.
