READY, SET, LFW

London Fashion Week is about more than just the shows, but with so much going on over the five day bonanza it’s easy to forget about the little things that make the event so special. Besides the clothes – obviously – here’s what we can’t wait to see during the crazy, non-stop schedule.

Topshop Unique AW13 Line-up

Impromptu Dance Numbers

One of our highlights from last season was undoubtedly the incredible shapes pulled out by models Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Rosie Tapner, backstage at the Topshop Unique show. The three showcased their dance skills, proving that their moves on the dancefloor were just as fierce as their walks on the runway. Last time it was the Harlem Shake, we wonder what their party piece will be this time round? Twerking anyone?

FROW Action

As every fashion aficionado knows, the front row line up of a fashion show is of high drama importance. Who’s on it, who’s next to who and of course, what are they all wearing – keeps us entertained right up to the opening look. We’re excited to see if this year’s line-up can top last season’s heady heights of Hollywood A-lister Kate Bosworth, the queen of chic Olivia Palermo and a scream-inducing One-Directioner – Hi Louis!

Backstage Beauty Tips

Fashion Week may be about the clothes, but it’s also one of the few times when the industry’s most talented make-up artists and hair stylists are all gathered in the same place, at the same time. This grouping of the world’s best beauty thinkers is the ideal opportunity to pick up the latest know-how, shortcuts and advice when it comes to primping perfection. We’re getting excited just thinking about it!

Stay tuned to the Topshop Blog all this week for of-the-moment show reports, first look catwalk reveals and exclusive backstage action from Topshop Unique and a host of other LFW shows.
