06 Mary Portas

Retail expert

Love her or loathe her, whenever Mary Portas speaks, we listen. Her influence on the industry soared this year and so has her position in the Power List. The opening of a shop-in-shop at House of Fraser on Oxford Street (the story of which was the subject of a Channel 4 documentary), her own label, plans to open a UK factory and her controversial government appointment to review the future of the high street makes her the second most powerful woman in fashion after Kate Middleton.

What they say about her…“Can she implement change, or is this just the Government being seen to do the right thing?”

Last year’s position 50
