Since it launched in 1964, TOPSHOP has become a major style authority and one of fashion's biggest success stories. Capturing the zeitgeist every season, it exemplifies up to the minute affordable style, while its brave and irreverent approach has endeared fashion-conscious shoppers and industry insiders alike.
With 300 stores in the UK and over 100 in growing international territories, TOPSHOP's triumph has been all the more remarkable considering its humble beginning. Now part of the long-standing retail force Arcadia Group, TOPSHOP began in the basement of Peter Robinson, a department store in the north of England, in 1964. Less than a decade later TOPSHOP became a stand-alone retailer. In 1994 the brand took over the entire 90,000 square foot space becoming the iconic TOPSHOP flagship store, attracting over 200,000 shoppers each week.
