Job creation in the 'other' sector

With all the talk of bankers sitting on piles of cash, employers squeezing out the last ounce of productivity in order to avoid hiring new workers as that would mean paying more in benefits, here is a story of niche-filling, job creating, seeing a need and filling it.  An article in a recent issue of the Weekend FT tells of a high powered business woman whose wardrobes (she has many homes and many closets) so overwhelmed her due to her travel schedule and very important events that she created a service that stores, barcodes (so you can see what clothes you have in storage) your clothing, alters, shops, and even delivers via personal jet whatever items you may need for whatever event you are attending in whatever part of the world.  This business is called Vault Couture.
