LONDON, February 21, 2011 - Topman has announced that it will be offering the use of its official
venue The Royal Opera House to two additional designers during Menswear Day
at London Fashion Week in February.

E Tautz (honoured this year's Menswear Designer of the Year Award at the
British Fashion Awards) and Lou Dalton, (NewGen Men award winner for a second
consecutive season) will show in addition to the Topman DESIGN and MAN shows
at the ROH on February 23rd.

Topman will show Topman DESIGN solo for its third season during the
official LFW Menswear Day - previously shown as part of MAN - which it
co-founded six years ago with Lulu Kennedy of Fashion East. MAN has been
instrumental in raising the profile of new British menswear designers to an
international audience. In recognition of this success, Fashion East's Lulu
and Topman have, with the support from the British Fashion Council
and the London Development Agency, curated London Fashion Week's first
dedicated menswear line-up.

Gordon Richardson, Topman design director, said: "The initial MAN concept
was to provide a platform for the wealth of menswear talent that was going
unnoticed in the UK. From its modest inception eight seasons ago, to an
established talent launch pad, this season MAN has curated a significantly
larger showcase at LFW: a testament to the amount of creative menswear
designers operating in Britain today. Our aim is to nurture this showcase and
grow it organically from season to season. It's a very exciting prospect."

Topman continues to fully dedicate its support and funding to the MAN
Show which enables the best of young emerging menswear talent showcase during
London Fashion

Topman remains the official sponsor of the British Fashion Council NewGen
Men Award - and this season it will be supporting eight designers across
catwalk, presentation and installation initiatives throughout Menswear Day.
