Topshop Introduction
Apparel Retailers United Kingdom  UK Fashion Industry

You know Topshop as the style setter and star of your wardrobe, but over the years they have become much more.  From the charities they sponsor to their work at London Fashion Week, their love of everything fashion appears to have no bounds!

Topshop started life in 1964 as Peter Robinson's Topshop, a fashion brand within the Sheffield branch of the Peter Robinson Ltd chain. By the 1970s Topshop had become a stand-alone store, and in 1994 it settled into its permanent home, 214 Oxford Street.

Since those humble beginnings in the basement of a department store they have grown significantly and in 2015 they had over 300 stores in the United Kingdom and 140 stores in international territories.  They ship to more than 100 countries and their eclectic British style is known all over the world.

Their Oxford Circus flagship is a mecca for cool girls, whether they're holidaying in London or living in the capital, and they have spread the love across the pond with flagships in Chicago and New York.

Over the years they have built a strong bond with industry insiders and in 2002 they joined forces with NEWGEN, an arrangement which allows them to foster new design talent and provide a global platform for the scene's brightest new stars.  As of 2015 Topshop has been the only high street brand to show on schedule at London Fashion Week, and Topshop Unique has become one of the style set's hottest ticket.

Topshop is on a mission to bring style to you, wherever you are.

In December 2012, Philip Green sold a 25 per cent stake in Topshop and Topman to the US-based private equity group Leonard Green and Partners for US$805 million.  Under the terms of the deal, Arcadia retained Topshop's flagship Oxford Street store (said to be worth between £400 and £500 million).  Green said that the deal would enable Topshop to speed up its expansion, particularly within the US
