Now in its twenty-third season, the iconic British highstreet brand always stands out on the international stage. With a mix of high and low brow fashion, cool-kid models and nods of approval from Anna Wintour the brand more than able to hold its own. If you're in London on Sunday, you can catch the show streamed live in Topshop Oxford Circus.
The formidable Christopher Bailey has a lot to live up to after last season's colour blocking glory, where the denim jacket usurped the trench coat and the accessories had a mind of their own. Whatever we see this season, rest assured the FROW will be superlative, the music live and selfies numerous.
