24 Harold Tillman

Owner, Jaeger, Allders and Aquascutum; chairman, British Fashion Council

The industry’s most dapper retailer, Harold Tillman continues to be the face of British fashion, staying on as BFC chairman beyond the traditional three-year tenure to see the industry through the Olympic year. He launched Fashion 2012 at London Fashion Week’s September edition, an Olympics-focused initiative comprising exhibitions at the V&A and missions to promote emerging UK and international designers. Elsewhere, he has cut losses at Aquascutum to £6m from £17m and signed a six-year licensing deal with manufacturing firm Ittierre to ramp up Aquascutum’s international presence. But according to reports, he pulled a potential sale of Jaeger after it failed to attract bids north of £100m.

Most likely to… Change his outfit three times a day.
