You could call Refinery29 a “fashion media site,” but that wouldn’t really cover the blend of style news, advertising and e-commerce that its founder, Mr. Von Borries, has pioneered. More and more companies, like Thrillist and Gilt Groupe, are marrying curation and commerce. Mr. Von Borries set the precedent.
