High street giant Topshop has long held a strong presence in London Fashion Week proceedings and this season it’s set to take centre stage. With live streaming of all the shows at the Topshop Show Space on topshop.com, fabulous fashion workshops, and its own Topshop Unique collection to present, we’re preparing ourselves already.
The Topshop Show Space is moving from last season’s old Eurostar tunnel at Waterloo to the iconic Old Billingsgate Market for AW11 and will play host to some of the hottest tickets in town. Richard Nicoll, Peter Pilotto, Meadham Kirchoff and, of course, Topshop Unique are just some of the big names that feature on the schedule. Just one hour later you’ll be able to replay the shows to your heart’s content and there’ll be daily updates with backstage footage and interviews!
GO BACK-STAGE AT UNIQUE SS11 SHOW
A firm favourite for spotting emerging designers, Fashion East will also be held at the Topshop Show Space as part of Topshop’s continued effort to do what London does best – support young design talent. And a creative fashion space will be set up in the Oxford Circus store for customers to acquaint themselves with this year’s NEWGEN designers.
Workshops will be being held at the Oxford Circus flagship from 18 to 22 February, with industry experts from designers to journalists, and make-up artists to bloggers including Susie Lau of Style Bubble. And On 22 February there will be the opportunity to pose a question (via a box instore or Twitter) to designer David Koma, who will be doing two live Q&As at the store. For more information head to topshop.com/londonfashionweek.
And don’t forget to get down to the store to receive one of three collectable Unique notebooks when you spend £70 or more.
Thank goodness for TOPSHOP!
