Since 1999 Topshop has been championing upcoming British <span

for the construction of an object or a system (as in architectural blueprints, engineering
drawings, business processes, circuit diagrams and sewing patterns).[1] Design has
different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases

coding and graphic design) is also considered to be design.</span> talent with exclusive
collections. Many of them have since gone on to become household names, the hottest
tickets at London Fashion Week and have won prestigious industry awards. To celebrate the
Topshop x HALPERN collaboration in November, we looked back at some of the best Topshop
designer collections ever…

1. Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane is one of the most established British designers today, but when he first
joined forces with Topshop in 2007 his brand was only a year old. His Topshop collection
in 2009 was definitely his most memorable – who could forget the iconic crocodile print
T-shirt <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or
a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice
giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>?

2. Mary Katrantzou

Everyone went wild for Mary Katrantzou’s trompe-l’œil prints when she showed her first
collection at LFW in 2008. Naturally, Topshop also took note of her remarkable designs and
brought her in to design three capsule collections, the biggest of which launched in 2012.

3. Kate Moss

It goes without saying that Kate Moss’ Topshop collections were just as iconic as the
supermodel herself. The acclaimed collaboration debuted in 2007 – with a range of pieces
that reflected some of her most famous looks over the years – and ended with a final
collaboration in 2014.

4. Richard Nicoll

The late Richard Nicoll’s most notable collaboration with Topshop was the brand’s very
first bridal line in 2012. The collection featured seven dresses that could be worn as a
bride or wedding guest outfit.

5. Jonathan Saunders

In 2010, Jonathan Saunders designed four exclusive pieces for Topshop. Since then he has
dressed celebrities like Madonna and Michelle Obama and until recently held the position
as chief creative officer at Diane Von Furstenberg.

6. Meadham Kirchhoff

Meadham Kirchhoff’s novelty designs made the brand an instant success after its launch in
2006. In 2013, the duo behind the brand released Topshop’s biggest offering in a designer
collaboration to date, featuring 80 of their signature whimsical pieces.

7. Ashish

Acclaimed designer Ashish Gupta designed a total of ten collections for Topshop, making it
one of the longest lasting collaborations. The final capsule was released in 2014,
featuring the hugely popular light-up trainers and PVC backpacks.

8. Preen

Preen (now known as Preen by Thornton Bregazzi) designed a range of pieces for Topshop in
2010 alongside Jonathan Saunders. About their collaboration with the brand, designer
Justin Thornton has said “What’s so great about Topshop is that they’ve always been big
supporters of young designers and emerging talent. Rather than just being a worldwide high
street brand Topshop also gives a little back and supports people.”

9. Marques’Almeida

Topshop x Marques’Almeida launched in 2014, bringing the brand’s popular raw-edge <span
class=”woR”>denim</span><span class=”woD”>Denim[1] is a sturdy cotton warp-faced[2] twill
