Be quick for Moss

Quick, quick hurry! We're already counting down to the launch of Kate Moss' debut collection for TopShop on May 1. We don't mean to throw a spanner in the works, but you'd better clear your diary for April 30 too: the flagship store on Oxford Street (London) is holding a special launch event. The store will close early, at 5.30pm, for two-and-a-half hours of feverish preparation before unveiling a new window at 8pm - and opening its doors on Ms Moss' hotly anticipated collection for the first time. Every 150 people in the queue will be issued with a different coloured wristband, which will entitle their colour group to shop in the Kate Moss section for 20 minutes (though the kind security people realise you will require extra time to drag your haul through the tills). Purchases are limited to five pieces per person, but you will get a shopping guide and goody bag thrown in. The store anticipates being open until midnight - then there's time for a quick few hours' beauty sleep before it re-opens at 7am for the madness to start all over again. Hurrah! Don't fancy fending off the crowds? The collection will also be available at http://www.topshop.com from around 6am on May 1.
