Ponystep is a London-based, premium, bi-annual print and online publication; focusing on fashion, music, art and high-octane personalities. I can see why Richard described the Ponystep as a project of passion, “working with people I like.” This may be why there is no apparent business model. However, this think-about-money-later formula has worked for Richard in the past – Boombox spawned a book, was invited to replicate itself in Milan and Paris, and drew attention (read: money) from big brands like Burberry.
