The fashion retailer says customers are free to use any fitting rooms.

Topshop has announced that its changing rooms are gender-neutral, following a complaint from a trans customer who claimed they were refused access to female fitting rooms.
Performance artist Travis Alabanza, who identifies as trans female and uses the pronoun "they," claims they were told to use the male changing rooms when they attempted to use the female changing cubicles to try on dresses.
Alabanza—who was shopping in a Topshop in Manchester, England—was allegedly told by staff to use the male changing rooms downstairs instead.
"Hey @Topshop just experienced transphobia in your Manchester store. Not letting me use the changing room I decide is shit, sort it out," Alabanza tweeted.

Kendall and Kylie Dropped a Lingerie Line and Didn’t Tell Anyone

TOPSHOP

Surprise!

Ring the alarm, Kardashian/Jenner superfans, because Kendall and Kylie Jenner have pulled a fast one on all of you — the sisters just dropped a lingerie collection with Topshop under their namesake brand Kendall + Kylie. But here's the plot twist: They didn't tell anyone. This isn't even an ICYMI, because literally everyone missed it. The line simply appeared on Topshop's website, as if by magic. A subtle launch may not be so surprising given Kylie's recent (still unconfirmed) pregnancy rumors and the controversy surrounding the brand's last collection. There was virtually no promotion for the line on either of the sisters' social-media accounts, nor was there a formal announcement — just a promotional photo of Kendall posted to Topshop's Instagram page. The capsule is co-designed by Fleur du Mal...

So, Topshop are trying to make suspender jeans happen

405

What do you think?

Earlier this summer Topshop tried to convince us that plastic jeanswere all the rage - Twitter hilariously weren't having any of it - but it turns out Topshop are now over plastic see through jeans, and it's all about the suspender jeans.

The tapered mom jeans, priced at £85, are now on the shopping site, and do you know what, we're not mad. But we are a little perplexed - scratching our heads. The plastic jeans sold out, so we're predicting this might happen with these, too! In the description section it says "the super striking suspender detail looks great paired with a laid-back long sleeve. Team with trainers for a casual twist." Will you brave enough to try this...

Kate Moss for Topshop 2007

Moss’s signature boho-style has seen her collaborate with Topshop 14 times.  The style icon’s collection could easily be blamed for the denim cut-off shorts and floral print tea dress fad that dominated English style in the mid-noughties.

For the first time, designer Molly Goddard of frothy frock fame has lent her expert designer eye to a range of fancy footwear. The new Molly Goddard X Topshop collection, set to go on sale in January, was designed in collaboration with the high-street brand and you might have spotted them on her SS17 runway.

The designer let us know what to expect, saying "some of the styles are really wearable and others are a little more daring". Leather, suede, wrap-up sandals and some spacey silver knee-high boots (Molly's personal favourites) will be hitting the shelves, so declutter your closets and make room in your shoe racks, ready for the launch on 23rd January.
