Details about Sydney’s Topshop store opening have finally emerged.
The news has finally been confirmed – Topshop will be opening its doors in the Sydney Gowings Building from October 2012.
According to the brand, the flagship store will feature the same selection of “trend-driven pieces, specialised collaborations and bespoke services” it’s renowned for. In other words, Sydney-siders will be privy to all the collections available internationally as well as the popular free styling service, which is good news for die-hard fans.
Managing Director for Topshop, Mary Homer, said she was confident the store would be a hit.
“We are very excited about the imminent launch of Topshop Sydney in October 2012, a city known for its trend-setting and fashion conscious crowds,” said Homer. “I feel confident the TOPSHOP aesthetic will strike a cord with the effortlessly chic Sydney market and build on the phenomenal success of our Melbourne flagship store.”
The news means a big shake-up for Sydney’s CBD, which has seen a number of international brands join its shopping line-up in the last year, including Zara, Miu Miu and Christian Louboutin.
“We are partnering with Topshop Topman to create a dynamic Sydney space whilst providing a uniquely British shopping experience,” said Hilton Seskin, Chairman of Next Athleisure. “The end result will be a match made in heaven for Sydney fashion lovers. Topshop Topman are on a mission to shake up the retail landscape in Sydney, bringing their own style to our incredible city.”

With Spring/Summer fashion starting to hit our shores and stores, there’s a new trend in fashion that’s making a big hit…Monochromatic!!!
Monochromatic is all about creating your whole outfit in one colour!!!
As seen on A-list celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna and Heidi Klum and on almost every Spring/Summer runway show overseas. But you don’t have to be an A-lister or have a trust fund to afford this rich look. All it takes is a keen eye and a love of color to pull it off.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to wearing this trend, it works in virtually every shade of the rainbow and can be worn in every season. The only trick is to keep the shades of your outfit in the same hue of colour. So, whether you’re a bit daring and choose a bright colour or you prefer to play a little safe in muted tones and natural hues…there is a look out there for you. Practice it in spring, carry it through to summer and rock it from head to toe in winter. Monochromatic fashion is anything but one-dimensional!
