This season Topshop have made big (and seriously exciting) changes to their Unique catwalk show. For the first time, you’ll be able to buy pieces from the catwalk immediately after the show – as soon as the final model leaves the runway.
Sound good? Then tune in to Topshop.com at 2pm this Sunday 18th September to watch the show live, and shop selected pieces online, in store and at their Old Spitalfields Market showspace.
They will also be bringing you live coverage and behind the scenes access from the London designers they’re supporting during London Fashion Week.

Topshop are taking the Topshop Unique show to East London’s iconic Old Spitalfields Market this season. Go down on show day to get involved and shop their curated market stalls open the public. You might even spot some of their front row guests passing through.
“We took inspiration from sexy seductresses,” said Topshop Creative Director Kate Phelan. “Think Charlotte Rampling, or Kate Moss – it’s a celebration of these gorgeous, powerful women.”
And what are they wearing? By day, the statement coat is key, with classic bikers re-imagined in metallic sheepskin and felted khaki. Come night, it’s all about ‘undressing’; double breasted
blazers are undone to reveal bras and leather, fabrics become sheerer and dresses are slashed to reveal breastbones and thighs.
