Sometimes we’ve been able to see the singer Beyonce wearing some Topshop clothes. Finally, the singer will design for the brand an sporty line based on fitness and dancing tohether with an ath-leisure side for those who just want to look like they work out.

This is not the first Topshop collection next to a famous person, before we’ve been able to see, between others, the Kate Moss collection for Topshop. But it isn’t the first sporty collection of the brand neither, because recently it collaborated with Adidas Originals to create a running line.

His name is related to Sarah Jessica Parker’s name, who like her character in Sex in the City, Carrie Bradshaw, fell in love with the dominican designer designs. One of the exemples of the great connection between the muse and the designer is the dress that the actress wore in the last MET Gala.
