Top 100: 72. Wendy Hallett

Founder, Hallett Retail

Many may claim originality in the fashion industry but few genuinely achieve it. Wendy Hallett has, an opinion shared by this year’s Drapers Fashion Awards judges, who bestowed on Hallett Retail the crown of Smaller Multiple Retailer of the Year. Acting as an intermediary between brands looking to break onto the high street and retailers craving newness is a balancing act that Hallett manages along with her husband Kevin, chief operating officer since 2007. Growth has been continual since the business launched, with its latest figures posting a turnover of £19.7m. It now operates a portfolio of about 1,300 brands in more than 30 stores in the UK and Europe.

Did you know… Hallett spent 13 years at Arcadia, having joined the company as a graduate trainee.
