BACKSTAGE AT TOPSHOP UNIQUE AW12

The Topshop team got to Unique bright and early. From the moment we got here the place was a hive of activity; unpacking boxes of clothes, assembling clothes rails, lining up the model boards and making all the last minute stitching and steaming adjustments to the collection. As soon as the models arrived the mayhem really began, with Sam McKnight briefing in his team of hairdressers to perfect the glossy bed-head look, and make up maven Hannah Murray teaching her fleet of assistants how to get a strong brow and that lovely dewy complexion.

We were dying to get the chance to speak with some of our favourite models. Campaign girls Anais and Lara told us how much they’re loving being Topshop girls, but how they are finding it really weird to see their own faces blown up on the walls every time they go shopping in their favourite store! The lovely Marte from the Netherlands told us she was looking forward to rocking out to the music for the show, so we’re sure she loved it when Azaelia Banks came blaring through the sound system!

Once the models took their place for the show rehearsal, we got really excited to see the clothes all lined up. Check back soon to see why! Our show report will be up on the blog very soon.
