GQ has Announced its List of the Top 100 Most Important People in Menswear in the UK. The judges for the GQ Fashion 100 list looked at the activities of all the fashion movers and shakers in the UK in order to decide who the most important trend setters in the business currently are. Perhaps not surprisingly, Sir Philip Green managed to head the list. As the owner of the Arcadia Group, the UK’s largest privately owned clothing retailer with more than 2,500 outlets, including Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evan, Miss Selfridge, Topman, Topshop and Wallis, he dominates the scene like no other individual.
To ensure the list is truly representative, the winners were judged on more than just their financial muscle. As well as business acumen, GQ also appraised their creativity and social connections. For the sake of fairness (or possibly modesty) GQ also chose not to include any employees at GQ.
The full GQ Fashion 100 list can be found on the GQ.com website. GQ is the UK’s biggest selling quality men’s magazine. Part of the Conde Nast stable – who also publish titles Vogue, Wired, Glamour and Vanity Fair.
