Kate Moss Mania hits the high street

So the Kate Moss range for Topshop went on sale this evening and of course hundreds of eager shoppers queued for hours on Oxford Street to be the first to get their hands on the merchandise. However the frenzy seems a bit pointless when each shopper was only allowed to try on 8 items and buy just 5 in an attempt to curb mass ebaying.

Fashion blog Catwalk Queen was blogging the whole experience from inside the queue (purely for journalistic reasons i’m sure), and made some interesting observations- in particular the fact that most of the ‘die-hard’ shoppers at the front of the queue were infact reporters and bloggers, and the meticulously clever event organisation from the store including generous sustainance that the Topshop staff who were handing out drinks, popcorn and sweets all afternoon.
