Florence Welch to Design for TopShop
Adding another number to the singer slash designer category is Florence and the Machine lead singer, Florence Welch.

Welch is going to create her own collection for UK retailer Topshop.

This just proves that in Hollywood, if you can act, sing, or rap, it is also assumed that you can design clothes. This is fact. It explains why people like Jessica Simpson still stay relevant because she now clothes Midwestern women since she’s finished doing what first made her famous i.e. singing or getting confused by tuna.

Like Kate Moss who collab’d with Topshop in 2007 and churned out collections that were inspired by (more like, exact copies of) items from her own closet, Welch will do something similar for the brand.

Welch will work with her stylist Aldene Johnson on the line, “Florence wants it to reflect her eclectic, quirky style,” says a source.

So basically, we can expect the collection to include sheer maxi dresses with built-in arm capes because that’s all I’ve ever seen Florence wear.

The source continues, “She has thousands of unique pieces, everything from vintage gowns to garments she’s been given by Karl Lagerfeld, and would love to work with Aldene to create a line inspired by her wardrobe, like Kate Moss did.”

However, Welch is overdue for this collaboration. In 2009, Topshop designed stage costumes for Welch for her Florence and the Machine tour. It’s only fair that Welch return the favor and design more fairy outfits for Topshop.
