London Fashion Week: Topshop Spring 2017-Runway to Retail

By  | 

Polished separates and sophisticated dresses were highlights of Topshop’s Spring 2017 London Fashion Week show.

There were hot pinks, bright reds and animal prints, but no Sir Philip Green at Topshop’s  Spring 2017 London Fashion Week show. The show was held at Spitalfields Market in East London.  Topshop Creative Director Kate Phelan paid homage to  80s fashions with a collection that was a little punk, a little romantic but all trendy Topshop.   The runway show featured some great dresses some with high-slits, tuxedos and hot pink shoes. There were also fresh looking romantic English floral prints, which Topshop has done so well.


Topshop Spring 2017 looks a little bit more like Fall with houndstooth & sequins.

Topshop Spring 2017 Runway to Retail–Seasonless

This season, Topshop pushed their Spring 2017 collection to consumers  via their website for sale immediately after the show. Isn’t that what fast fashion is all about?  Today’s fashion week shows are no longer events for retail buyers, but digital marketing promotions to sell product now. The collection’s silk and ruffle blouses, high-waisted trousers, tailored waistcoats and smart tuxedo jackets and vintage-styled prints featuring English Roses (the Aubrey prints) are all on sale now at Topshop and selling briskly.  Other collection highlights are velvet tailoring, houndstooth coats and sequin dresses (featured in the show finale.)  The red Aubrey dress with ties (pictured above) is a standout.  See some of our Topshop collection favorites below.
