Maniere De Voir creator Reece Wabara, 29, also made it onto the list in addition to Lounge Underwear founders Daniel, 29, and Melanie Marsden, 28, whose clothing is worn by a host of celebrities including Love Island's Molly Smith.
Tommy was inspired to create own brand after being teased over his cheap trainers as a teenager.
'I’m not going to lie, it didn’t make me feel good at all,' Tommy told FEMAIL in 2018. 'But at the end of the day everyone goes through hard times. Not being able to afford them made me want to push forward and prove to not only them, but also to myself, that I could get to where I wanted to be, and be even more than that!

'I feel like at one point in my life I definitely could have had the potential to go down the wrong path but ultimately, I knew that I wanted to do things the right way and to succeed. So staying on the right track was important to me.'
Tommy - who has never attended university - also turned his lack of qualifications into a positive as he knew he'd have to work hard if he wanted to be more than a carpenter - a job he did for three years.
'In the back of my head I’ve always known that I didn’t have anything like GCSEs and I knew that I needed to push myself harder because of this, but I wouldn’t say it got me down. It actually motivated me to become more successful,' he explained.
Tommy decided to put pen to paper and design his own footwear in 2015 as he wanted to create an ‘evening’ sneaker using high quality materials at an affordable price.
'When I was younger I never had enough money to buy a pair of trainers that I genuinely liked because they were all so expensive, so I put pen to paper and decided to design something similar,' he recalled.
'At the time, I had a friend who was working in the industry and he agreed to make me the pair from my initial design. They actually came out great and it was from there that we decided to partner up and to make Mallet London
