Drapers Top 100 2017 – 75. Touker Suleyman, owner, Hawes & Curtis, Low Profile, Ghost


Touker Suleyman has become a household name thanks to his appearances as a panellist on BBC Two’s Dragons’ Den, which he joined in 2015. But in the fashion retail industry, he is better known for his ownership of companies including manufacturer Low Profile, Jermyn Street shirtmaker Hawes & Curtis and womenswear brand Ghost. This year he also invested in womenswear etailer Finery London.

Hawes & Curtis has been hit by stiff competition, rising costs and the drop in the value of sterling since last year’s Brexit vote. Suleyman is now prioritising its international online business and new flagship on Oxford Street. Meanwhile, he is building Ghost’s online and US wholesale businesses, and helping Finery to reduce its costs. His net worth is estimated at around £150m.
