If you haven’t had chance to check out the Design Museum’s latest exhibition, Women Fashion Power yet, now’s your chance. We’re giving away 2 tickets! All you need to do is head to Twitter, retweet and prepare to channel your inner girl boss.
Designed by stellar architect Zaha Hadid, the show spans 150 years of empowering female fashion; from ouch-inducing corsets and intricately beaded flapper dresses, to ’60s shifts and skinny suits. Alongside some amazing pieces of historic and iconic clothing – worn by some of the most influential women – the exhibition showcases a 7 screen video installation from ShowStudio’s Ruth Hogben, featuring one-off interviews with the likes of Charlotte Olympia and Roksanda Ilincic about their ultimate power pieces. We particularly enjoyed being introduced to the world of beach pyjamas (yes, they’re a thing) and some incredible retro M&S advert footage when we headed down last week. Sound like your cup of tea? Head on over to Twitter.

In need some winter coat inspiration? Look no further than birthday girl, mum to Kate Hudson and all round retro style icon Goldie Hawn. To celebrate her 69th big day, we’re taking note of her timeless cold-weather style.

A woollen, tailored number is essential for looking sharp whilst keeping cosy. Goldie rocked hers on the set of 1971 movie, The Heist.

Floor length faux fur is the ultimate coat statement, and this season’s colourful printed options are the ideal cover-up for your party dress.
3. Perfect parka

Goldie donned her classic parka to film the 1980 comedy Private Benjamin. Her shaggy, Alexa style hairdo is still a great accompaniment.

The Met Gala is undeniably the best party in the fashion calendar, so of course Topshop loves to get involved. This year we created six bespoke gowns for our favourite celeb guests, including Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman, Toni Garnn and Zoe Kravitz… and now the very dresses could be yours!
We’ll be auctioning each celeb dress on eBay from Thursday 27th November, with proceeds going to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. Inspired by the theme of the party, our in-house designers handmade each dress in the style of British Couturier Charles James using top-end materials and with each girl’s personal style in mind. So if you’re after a bespoke, celeb-loved gown in aid of a good cause, it’s time to get bidding!
The Topshop Met Gala dresses will be auctioned on eBay from Thursday 27th November at 7pm GMT to Sunday 7th December at 7pm GMT.

If there’s one thing 5th Avenue is known for it’s the next level service when it comes to shopping. There was no question then when our brand new Topshop came to the iconic avenue we’d need to offer one of the best Personal Shopping areas ever seen. As part of the four floor 40,000 square space we’ve cornered off an exclusive section dedicated to Topshop Personal Shopping. Complete with a cosy lounge, endless sweet treats and a troupe of fabulously dressing Personal Shoppers – needless to say it’s an area we would happily spend all day in!
Global Head of Personal Shopping Soulmaz Vosough has spent months carefully selecting her oh-so-stylish head shoppers who will be on hand to carefully pick out your unique Topshop looks. Whether it’s a statement dress for a one-off event or a complete wardrobe overhaul our Personal Shoppers are skilled for every occasion imaginable.
To make a real splash on 5th Ave we hosted three events in the run up to opening, from Martinis and Munchies – with a fully stocked bar and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres – to the cutest tea time afternoon shop for mother’s and daughters – think classic mini scones and china tea cups – there really was an appointment for every New Yorker.
It didn’t end there and some of New York’s style savvy came out to host their very own Personal Shopping events. Observer style columnist Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzo rallied the city’s most glamorous ladies whilst photographer Michael Avedon brought a little downtown cool. Whatever your taste and whatever your budget, there really is only one Personal Shopping area to head to… see you at 5th Avenue?
