Yesterday, The Sunday Times published their annual rich list and it was not without a few fashion faces. Obviously, because of the financial climate it's been a tumultuous year for cash flow, but some of the biggest names in retail have managed to stay high up in the list. Sir Philip Green has made an enormous impact on the High Street, particularly with Topshop which recently launched in New York. He is sixth in the list, along with his wife Lady Green, reportedly owning £3.83 billion despite losing £500 million in the past 12 months.

Other key fashion names in the list included BFC chairman Harold Tilman at number 201. He has investments in Jaeger, and has unfortunately lost £70 million this year. Paul Smith is also on the list and is well placed for the difficult time ahead having just opened a warehouse in his hometown of Nottingham. He lost £30 million, but still holds on to a cool £230 million.
Tamara Mellon is one of only 100 women in the list and has managed to keep her wealth at an equal level to last year at £102 million. She has recently made significant investments in the revival of Halston which has so far been very successful.
