29 Christopher Bailey

Chief creative officer, Burberry

He may not be number one again this year, but the top spot is hard to maintain two years in a row, however exceptional you are – and Christopher Bailey continues to be just that. But even his design prowess couldn’t match his unrivalled trend dominance of 2010. Bailey continues to dictate, with the high street picking up on his studding details for spring 11 and coloured outerwear for autumn 11. Where he continues to lead the way is in the digital world of designer brands. Bailey masterminded another first for Burberry when he created the ‘Tweetwalk’ for September’s spring 12 show, on which he debuted the catwalk looks before the models even hit the catwalk.
