With ASOS’s recent London College of Fashion collaboration the store has joined Topman in the commendable position of being a popular fashion retailer providing young talent with somewhere to showcase their work.
Topman’s ‘MAN’ menswear show, a linkup with Fashion East, has already established itself as being synonymous with the skilled up-and-coming designers, with collections from Kim Jones and Cassette Playa having previously featured.
Each season the best are chosen to show their work alongside the high street retailer’s ‘Topman Design’ range at London Fashion Week. This year, selected designers include James Long, Hans Madsen, Christopher Shannon and Andrea Crews. In anticipation of the S/S ’09 show in September, Colette is making samples of their work available in the form of exclusive print tees with matching cotton bags.
