Topshop Unique’s Frow Through the Ages

Take a walk through the front rows of LFW past

Topshop Unique’s Frow Through the Ages

by Lucy Morris |

London Fashion Week is well under way and like every year Topshop Unique is the hot ticket to have. Each season the catwalk is a walking payday wishlist clad on the top models of the day. There is only one thing that’s as remarkable as the clothes: the front row. Every show a new crop of celebrities, peacocks and influencers get nestled in between stalwart editors on the front row. Some people, like Alexa Chung, have had seat A-1 since the beginning, but other’s come and go. Take a look at these vintage snaps from Topshop Unique’s catwalk debut until now to remember who’s had frow-access from the get-go and who’s been demoted to second row.
