fashion's heavy hitters in Fast Company magazine...

The business magazine Fast Company recently published their list of the 100 most creative people in business for their June issue. Topping the list is our generation's Madonna, (if you ask me) Lady GaGa. Her pitch-perfect use of every media outlet (both online and traditional) has garnered her a religious following of "Little Monsters" and turned her into a flat out phenomenon.
Coming in at number 13 Pheobe Philo, the creative director of LVMH's Celine. She, the creator of Chloe's iconic "Paddington" bag took a break from fashion to raise her kids, and returned to the fashion world a few years later for the struggling French line. The magazine sites her as the "master of minimalism" and aplauds her last two collections for Celine and the excitement they generated at fashion week.
Tom Ford made the list at 45. His very stylish film, A Single Man (which I still haven't seen) was his directorial debut - and earned him three Golden Globe nominations as well as an Oscar nod. Up next for him are a women's line and another film project.
Here's one that really surprised me: 14-year-old fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson. She made the list at number 85! First of all this is a huge moment for bloggers in general, and also inspiring for (very) young people. Check out her blog, Style Rookie, which has around 54,000 daily readers. Something to strive for, eh?
Another style blogger, Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean, rounds out the fashion set at 97. His men's style blog is devoted exclusively to American brands and designers. Since launching his blog in 2007, he's collaborated with Cole Haan, Steven Alan, and Gant.
I found this list pretty interesting, mostly for who was left off. What about Marc Jacobs? Hmm... Any other fashion industry pros you think should have made the list?
