51 Mary Portas (45)

Television presenter, and creative director, Yellowdoor

Retail guru and Yellowdoor creative consultancy co-founder Mary Portas is still the queen of fashion boutiques.

Many sought her no-nonsense advice in the competition Drapers ran for indies to win a candid Portas critique of their business, and more are signing up for her workshops run by sector skills council Skillsmart Retail. She has helped raise the bar in retailing and has reignited a passion for indies among the public via her work in The Daily Telegraph.

Yellowdoor, the agency Portas runs with business partner Peter Cross, broadened its reach in 2010, taking on the PR for value giant Matalan and branded young fashion chain Republic.
