London’s 25 Power List
DALLAS, Dec 14, 2009 / FW/ — Not so long ago, London was a city looking for a star; today, they have several as the British Fashion Council continues to lure home British brands and designers. Yet, in the end, it does not matter what city they show – New York, Milan, Paris and of course, London.
What mattered was that they are British, and wherever they are, they represent British fashion. So, perhaps it is fitting that as 2009 closes, the British Fashion Council Press Committee created ‘The Power List’, a roster of the 25 most influential people working in Britain’s fashion industry today.
The list includes designers Alexander McQueen, Christopher Bailey, Hussein Chalayan and John Galliano, models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, photographer David Bailey and make-up artist Pat McGrath amongst others.
As ‘The Power List’ was voted for by the BFC Press Committee, chaired by Lucy Yeomans, it was decided that no press should be included.
The Power List (in alphabetical order):
Anna Whiting & Sam Gainsbury
Dame Vivienne Westwood
Sir Paul Smith
Sir Philip Green
Sir Stuart Rose
