Thousands of shoppers lined the streets of London for the launch of model Kate Moss’s fashion collection at Topshop’s Oxford Street branch on Monday evening. Kate delighted the crowds as she appeared in the shop window posing alongside the mannequins as eager fans snapped photos of her on their mobile phones.
Kate Moss’s designs include clothes, bags, shoes and belts with prices ranging from £12 for a vest top to £150 for a cropped leather jacket. Apparently the inspiration from the designs has come from pieces which Kate already owns. Groups of 150 shoppers at a time were allowed into the store for 20 minutes during which time, they could buy up to five items, mainly to discourage people from selling the designs on Ebay. Despite this several items from the collection appeared on Ebay within hours of going on sale, before the collection went on general sale at Top Shop branches nationwide.
