The luxury fashion industry is on the up, despite the crisis, and yet there is only one fashion designer featured in this year's Time 100 list: Marc Jacobs.
No surprise there: the man is a money-making - and handbag-designing - machine.
In an ironic twist, Time preferred to include fashion's greatest personae on the other side of the pen - as the interviewers rather than the interviewees.
Tom Ford profiles Liya Kebede, Donatella Versace interviews Jet Li, and Donna Karan talks to Zaha Hadid.
Fashion and culture always have been a compatible intermix.
