The first Topshop and Topman Sydney store opened its doors last night with a star-studded launch party that allowed VIP guests to eat canapés and sip on champagne and cocktails while perusing the many racks of clothes in the four-floor flagship. Some celebrities were invited on Tuesday to choose outfits from the store to wear for their purple carpet arrival, including Jesinta Campbell, Ruby Rose, Puberty Blues actress Isabelle Cornish, newlywed Vogue Williams, Lisa and Jess Origliasso of The Veronicas, and Erin McNaught, who debuted a new hairstyle for her brief Sydney return from Europe. But it wasn’t just about the stylish ladies, many of whom were wearing on-trend peplum and metallics — guys such as Brian McFadden, Didier Cohen and Hayden Quinn were fitted out in Topman threads.
The store officially opens to the public today at 9 a.m. and it has sparked a retail frenzy, with some keen shoppers even staying the night outside the doors.
