Fiona McLean, 32 and Clare Thommen, 29
: Boudiche

Despite having little experience in retail, McLean and Thommen weren’t afraid to question the received wisdom of the High Street with the Edinburgh-based lingerie boutique they established in 2005. The two ex-accountants focus on personal service and creating a memorable customer experience, with lingerie hand chosen by the founders and sold by a team of trained bra fitters.

An online boutique was launched in 2006. The approach appears to be working; they’ve recently opened a second boutique in Glasgow, have three more in the pipeline and add their inclusion in Young Guns to a host of awards and industry recognition.
