  • Topshop also partnered with Elle magazine for a Tweetwalk that saw images shared live from backstage over Twitter on both accounts moments before they hit the runway
  • The result saw clicked on by over 120 countries
  • More traffic was generated to the site from the USA on one day than in its entire history. This was highlighted as particularly exciting in a week were the brand has opened 15 new stores in the country through a partnership with department store Nordstorm
  • The “Customise the Catwalk” shoppable element of the initiative resulted in pieces selling out from the new collection within an hour
  • Make-up products were also purchased during every minute of the show
