We may be biased, but we don’t think Billingsgate Market has ever looked prettier than it did for the Topshop Unique show earlier today. Not only was the sunlight bouncing off the River Thames and flooding the venue, but the crowd that streamed in to watch the show were friendly, gorgeous, and overall very excited to see what our design team had to offer for AW12.


We caught Olivia Palermo looking amazing in clashing prints – all from Topshop – and chatted to Nicola Roberts about why our Unique show is the highlight of her London Fashion Week. Poppy Delevigne showed us the packet of Strepsils that she always carries in her handbag to keep her husky voice from disappearing altogether, and Pixie Geldof was loving the beetroot and lentil salad being served up at the restaurant.


Speaking of which, the Bistrotheque boys did a sterling job of feeding and watering the hungry masses. The champagne was flowing, the chocolate brownies were like gold dust, and the quail Scotch eggs were a welcome treat for everyone – particularly one Mr. Hamish Bowles, who pronounced them excellent!


If you missed the show, you can watch it here and see what all the fuss was about for yourself!
