Topshop/Topman 'We Are 1' Anniversary

Topman/Topshop at Orchard ION, Singapore turned "1" recently and I was invited to their birthday EXTRAVANGANZA!It was a hot and steamy affair as the entire event took place at a cleverly-transformed carpark garage above the mall; the venue had this "ghetto Detroit underground" vibe to it. Guest mingling were treated to Frolick's frozen yogurt and ice cold Pure Blonde beers to quell the sweltering heat. Canapés were served as well.

The british high-street fashion chain then kicked off it's respective Autumn/Winter 2010 runway presentation. It was the longest runway I have ever seen (besides Fashion's Night Out) and it took several turns around corners; thankfully I was seated front row. The main highlight of the entire show for me was when local top model, Sheila Sim strutted down the runway. Both collection was all about layering. The Topman collection had a recurring play on stripes and plaid. Heavy knits, coats and jackets aplenty. The Topshop theme might very well be tapped as "Russian Winterland." Shearling-lined pieces (very burberry-esque), faux fur coats, heavy knits, fringed blouse and black lace leggings (that made several appearances that night).

After the presentation, we were "escorted" by the models to Topshop/Topman ION and as VIPs of the night, we were entitled to a 20% discount off any regular pieces. Ladies (and men) were treated to manicure sessions and I finally managed to check out the Topshop Makeup Collection; pretty affordable and nifty! Sad to say, I was unable to purchase anything due to the sheer madness in the store but do take a look at the A/W 2010 collection, several pieces were amazing. That said, I had an amazing time during the event and once again... Happy Belated Anniversary to Topman & Topshop!
