Greek-German by birth, Isabelle Kountoure splits her time between London and Paris.
Currently Style Director of Financial Times HTSI, she is a fashion editor and image consultant with over 20 years of experience in the industry.
Having made a name for herself by breathing new life into famed publications such as POP and Wallpaper*, and contributed to Interview, Harper’s Bazaar US and Vogue Italia, she has also consulted for luxury brands including Dior, Louis Vuitton and Armani and is a committee member of the British Fashion Council.
A visual storyteller at heart, Isabelle’s work is inspired by a wide range of cultural influences, and she has often merged the worlds of fashion, art and photography – artist collaborations include Marina Abramović, Do Ho Suh, Katrien De Blauwer and Linder Sterling. In terms of photography, she has worked with established greats such as Paolo Roversi, Vincent van De Wijngaard, Nathaniel Goldberg, Brigitte Niedermair and the late David Armstrong; equally, she has always enjoyed working with and promoting the next generation, be it Harley Weir, Drew Vickers, or Marili Andre. Her unique fashion vision, often underpinned by a less-is-more ethos, and her considered, strategic approach to publishing, have been central to HTSI’s hugely successful transformation since 2020.
