NEW YORK — Topshop has a clear strategy for its upcoming assault on the U.S. market — transplant the high-octane, trendy experience of its London flagship.
Those same spunky harlequin dresses, tuxedo jackets and sequined hot pants that play well in the U.K. are coming to Broadway in mid-October with a 40,000-square-foot store composed of four selling floors; glossy shelving; futuristic lighting tubes and a DJ booth, both suspended from the ceiling; an "army" of mannequins; a shoe lounge; 32 changing rooms, and a VIP suite for the expected celebrity clientele.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
