Ever since Topshop opened their Vancouver flagship store on Granville Street in 2012, Canadians who have an inclination for a British fashion fix now have it in their backyard.
On the third day of London Fashion Week, Topshop's name came up as a must-see show on the day's impressive list including shows from Mary Katrantzou and Jonathan Saunders. Topshop was the first ever high-street label to debut in 2005, causing a frenzy of conversation in the fashion industry because high-street shops are sometimes perceived as replicators of haute couture designs. However, after almost a decade, Topshop has established itself as a key player and supporter of young designers.
The Vancouver Observer attended the Topshop Unique Autumn/Winter 14 show at the Tate Modern Museum in London today and saw Ryan Lo's (winner of the NEWGEN AW14 award) pieces afterwards.
Here are some of our favorite looks.
