In a new collaboration with Nordstrom, the popular British fashion lines Topshop and Topman are now available to customers at the Houston Galleria store. To celebrate, Texas fashion blogger Merritt Beck of The Style Scribe hosted the opening celebration of the new Topshop location inside Nordstrom and styled mannequins throughout the space to act as inspiration for shoppers.

“Houston is full of such elegant, glamorous women — all with impeccable style and great taste,” Beck says.

Houston is the brand's second location in Texas — Austin was the first — and Topshop will soon be available at Nordstrom stores in San Antonio and Dallas as well.

 “Houston is full of such elegant, glamorous women — all with impeccable style and great taste." 

The brand is known for providing modern fashion styles at affordable prices, with most pieces costing less than $100. The offerings range from beautiful jacquard skirts and gorgeous leather boots to colored denim and luxurious faux fur coats. The brand is also known for featuring collections designed by high-end designers such as Christopher Kane and Mary Katrantzou.

Topshop also features extremely unique "trend collections" — one of them is named "Margot's World" after the bright, straightforward pieces worn by the eponymous character in Wes Anderson's film, The Royal Tenenbaums​. Additionally, Topshop highlights its "Boutique" and "Unique" collections, with fashion-forward items like a silk maxi shirt dress and brightly patterned satin shorts.

The Topshop section, clearly marked by a huge illuminated sign, is on the second floor of the Nordstrom Galleria store.
