Topshop hysteria launched with a bang Tuesday night at a private dinner right around the corner from its' brand new Broadway location at Balthazar hosted by Topshop owner Sir Phillip Green. The city has been covered with Topshop billboards for months and you might have even spotted one of their gift-card-dispensing trucks about town. The wait is officially over as doors open Thursday! NYC socialites and celebrities were on hand to celebrate the opening for the first US location of the mid-budget, high fashion retailer and to catch a performance by DJ and producer, Mark Ronson along with the ever so cool and talented Santigold, Spank Rock, Daniel Merriweather, The Dap Kings, Phantom Planet's Alex Greewald, and even Jimmy Fallon who took the mic for his own version of Sting's "Englishman in New York".
