Topshop Appoints New Global Design Director from Asos
Topshop officially replaced its design director Emma Farrow with Asos womenswear design director Jacqui Markham. Markham will be taking on the challenging role as the new global design director for Topshop, and is expected to work alongside creative director Kate Phelan for the in-house design team. The two will be overseeing the design team of 60 to refocus the design and product development of the high fashion retail store.
Markham, however, is not a new face in Topshop. In fact, she is a returnee who worked for 14 years at Topshop and rose to design director before she completed her two year stint at Asos. She is the brand’s top connoisseur, having graduated in Fashion Design and has worked for brands such as Oasis and Karen Millen.
”I’m really excited about my new role as global design director at Topshop,” said Markham. “As we move into a new phase of international expansion and partnerships, our aim continues to be the world’s number one fashion authority. Strong and cutting-edge design has always been our focus and I hope to continue building on and further strengthening this position.”
As for Emma Farrow, she is now the brand director at Finery London, a UK-based fashion startup that recently launched its line of mid-range womenswear.
You can find chic and edgy fashion creations at Topshop to complete your fancy, high-street look, and expect to see more of the best finds with the appointment of the new global design director.
Topshop currently has over 319 stores in the United Kingdom and more than 137 franchises in 40 countries. The fast fashion titan has already opened five chain stores across Australia, including one in the Pitt St Mall. Topshop is located in the Gowings Building, on the corner of Market and George streets.
