Kate’s £5 million deal with Topshop to produce her own line is causing unrest among designers who feel that celebrities are cashing in on their territory – this summer alone Kate Moss, Lily Allen and Madonna will all have their own collections on the high street.

British designer Jeff Bank is the latest to criticise this trend:

“Can Kate sharpen a pencil or draw a matchstick man? I wouldn’t put money on it,” the disgruntled designer – who recently created clothes for London’s 2012 Olympic bid – said. “I’ll bet [Kate Moss] just grabbed one of her many Prada bags, rifled through her wardrobe … and turned up at TopShop’s head office in Oxford Street for a quick hour’s briefing with the in-house designers and buying staff.”

TopShop has been quick of the mark to respond to this latest criticism:

Kate Moss has had a huge input in the range at every level, from the design concept of the garments to the fitting and the logo. The fashion industry may be a different place to one Jeff Banks is used to. Top designers like John Galliano don’t cut patterns, they have pattern cutters. That’s the industry.”

If you’re a true fashion addict and want to check out more of what all the fuss is over head over to the Topshop website where you can ever pre-order some pieces
