TOPSHOP/TOPMAN has come to town in a really BIG way! Beginning with a private VIP store experience on Wednesday, Sept. 7th, to the by-invite-only dinner at Paris Club to having Miley Cyrus open the store, these guys know how to do it up right. The store is 30,000' ft. with three levels of the best of British fall trends at reasonable prices.
I loved exploring the near empty space before the crowds came and found some terrific items for myself. (The hats shown in a following photo weren't one of them). I even saw TOPSHOP/TOPMAN founder, Sir Philip Green, admiring the store with his beautiful daughter Chloe yesterday. And for today's opening, Miley Cyrus, joined Sir Philip and Chloe for photo ops on Michigan Avenue!
Last night, at Paris Club, 180 invitees showed up for a sit-down dinner. The entire place had been rented out for this party that was planned entirely by TOPSHOP personnel. They left nothing to chance even planning the exquisite white floral arrangements spread throughout the room. It was elegance all the way including the French-inspired menu choices such as chicken paillard, halibut with mushroom veloute, French green beans, Provencal vegetable plate and a truffled chicken terrine among other delicious offerings.
The tables were all peppered with TOPSHOP honchos giving all of the guests a chance to talk shop with the pros. I didn't stay for the after-party at Studio Paris but TOPSHOP spokesperson, Miley Cyrus did!!!
Their future plans include expanding stores into New York, California and Las Vegas. Pretty soon, every TOP city in the world will have a TOPSHOP!
