Trend-right clothing chain Topshop said it has signed on supermodel Kate Moss to design a new fashion range to be launched next spring/summer season.

Moss, who is regularly snapped wearing the high-street chain's pieces, will work with Topshop's designers to create the collection, which will be sold in all of 308 UK stores as well as globally and online.

Moss has made a strong comeback following a drugs scandal last year, netting several high-profile advertising campaigns and being welcomed back by companies. A number of brands were momentarily forced to drop her following newspaper pictures of her allegedly snorting cocaine.

Sir Philip Green, who owns Topshop's parent company Arcadia, said: "Kate has a unique position as a true fashion icon and I look forward to helping develop 'Kate Moss for Topshop' into a global brand".

"Kate's appeal is not just in the UK - she has a global profile and creates a fashion statement wherever she is seen."

Topshop's PR manager Andrew Leahy told just-style: "Details are being confirmed; the deal was only signed last night."

However, he revealed that the range would be a longer-term one and would be "a fairly large collection - maybe two per season and then highlight pieces to continue freshening the line up".

Moss said she loves "what they [Topshop] stands for" and regularly shops there.

The announcement confirmed rumours earlier this week caused by Moss' presence at Topshop's catwalk show.
