This 22nd of September, for two consecutive years running, Topman Designs is going to present a solo show at the famous Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
This show will become part of the menswear day for London’s fashion week. The first solo was held at the official British Fashion Council (BFC) Tents. Topman had also set up an event along side Fashion East with MAN.
That was 11 seasons ago and this season, Topman will also be set up along with MAN at the Royal Opera House. This year, the show will be shown live at Topman.com and also at their famous Oxford Street store.
Also after the show, only limited pieces will be sold online. This will also be a first time. In relation to working alongside with MAN, Gordon Richardson, Design Director has said, “The decision to show apart from MAN last season was welcomed by both the MAN and the Menswear Panel who collectively agreed that it was the right time for us. We established a consistent design ethic and we continue to have a good following both giving us the confidence we needed to move on and allow MAN to continue to nurture new young talent which is after all its purpose.”
