Farfetch founder, chairman and CEO José Neves said: “I am delighted to report that Farfetch was back to growth in the first quarter of 2023. Our first quarter results represent the first step towards achieving our plan for 2023, our Year of Execution and demonstrate our strong execution in the face of continued macro headwinds.

“Our sequential improvement in GMV growth in the US and China, our two largest markets, as well as in orders across the Farfetch Marketplace, indicate the strength and resilience of our core business.”
