Kate Moss designs range for Topshop

Kate Moss has joined forces with Topshop to design and create her own collection for the high street store.The range, known as Kate Moss for Topshop, will be available in all of its 308 stores and its online site from the spring of next year."I have always been a big fan of Topshop and regularly shop there. I love what they stand for and am very excited at the thought of working with them. It's going to be great fun," Moss said.Topshop's owner, Philip Green, said in a statement: "Kate has a unique position as a true fashion icon and I look forward to helping develop Kate Moss for Topshop into a global brand."It is the final stage in her remarkable comeback from a year ago when she was shunned by some of the biggest names in the fashion industry.Brands including Burberry and Hennes and Mauritz dropped the model from their advertising campaigns following photos in a tabloid newspaper which appeared to show her snorting cocaine.Since then she has gradually made her way back to the top of the business through numerous contracts including Calvin Klein and Dior.
