Topshop Snubs Beth Ditto

After Beth Ditto publically refused to sing in Topshops flagship store as they didn't stock her size, it was widely rumoured that Ditto would be their next celebrity designer collaboration.

She was quoted as saying 'Give me the job. I want to design. I want you to make clothes for big girls - big boys. I want you to make big sizes.'

It has now come to light that Topshop have snubbed her offer, however, it is set to launch the new line by Kate Moss imminently.

Earlier in the year, NME also favoured size zero over plus size, when they crowned Kate Moss with the sexiest female award, beating nominated Beth, size 20.

Although the high street may not see the value in Beth's quirky, but highly regarded style, this is not the case in designer land. Henry Holland, one of the hottest names in British fashion at present, is keen to work with Beth.

'In terms of collaborating, I absolutely love Beth Ditto,' Holland said.

The pair met at the Brits when the Gossip star wore one of Holland's jumpsuits. The all-in-one featured in his autumn/winter collection and bears his signature motto.
