Top Shop is one of the most highly regarded brands on the high street. As well as offering a great range of clothing for women, men and children Top Shop is well known for its support of the UK fashion industry.
Since it launched in 1964 the brand has grown to encompass over 300 stores in the UK and over a 100 in growing international territories, the company’s triumph has been all the more remarkable considering its humble beginnings. Top Shop began in the basement of a department store in the North of England.
30 years later the iconic Top Shop flagship is the world's largest fashion store on the high street, attracting over 200,000 style savvy shoppers each week. Their website attracts an average of 700,000 unique users per week.
A staunch supporter of young British design talent, Top Shop has sponsored the globally recognised New Generation scheme since 2002, which has bolstered the careers of fashion heavy-weights such as Alexander McQueen and Matthew Williamson, as well as emerging talents like Christopher Kane, Danielle Scutt and Marios Schwab.
An early pioneer of high street/ designer collaborations, partnerships with some of history's most iconic fashion names, including Kate Moss and Celia Birtwell, have further cemented the brand's reputation as fashion leader and trend setter.
