Age
: 33
Company: Heidi Klein

Not being able to buy a bikini, pair of sunglasses and leg wax under the same roof isn't one of GB man's main concerns, but for Gosman and co-founder Penny Klein, 32, it represented a rare gap in the female retail sector. Formerly retail analysts, they raised private equity funding and launched luxury one-stop holiday shop Heidi Klein in April 2002. There are now two in London and one in St. Tropez, each generating £1m in sales a year. The New York store will open in spring 2006, but focus is centralised on developing the company's own brand – already its best-selling label.
