The news has finally been confirmed – Topshop will be opening its doors in the Sydney Gowings Building from October 2012.
According to the brand, the flagship store will feature the same selection of “trend-driven pieces, specialised collaborations and bespoke services” it’s renowned for. In other words, Sydney-siders will be privy to all the collections available internationally as well as the popular free styling service, which is good news for die-hard fans.
Managing Director for Topshop, Mary Homer, said she was confident the store would be a hit.
“We are very excited about the imminent launch of Topshop Sydney in October 2012, a city known for its trend-setting and fashion conscious crowds,” said Homer. “I feel confident the TOPSHOP aesthetic will strike a cord with the effortlessly chic Sydney market and build on the phenomenal success of our Melbourne flagship store.”
The news means a big shake-up for Sydney’s CBD, which has seen a number of international brands join its shopping line-up in the last year, including Zara, Miu Miu and Christian Louboutin.
“We are partnering with Topshop Topman to create a dynamic Sydney space whilst providing a uniquely British shopping experience,” said Hilton Seskin, Chairman of Next Athleisure. “The end result will be a match made in heaven for Sydney fashion lovers. Topshop Topman are on a mission to shake up the retail landscape in Sydney, bringing their own style to our incredible city."
