Created by designer Niki Taylor, The Top Project is a vibrant and forward thinking, sustainable design store. Alongside our own range of unique, eye-catching silk tops and covetable, luxurious silk vintage blouses, The Top Project promotes and sells the work of emerging print designers and illustrators on 100% organic cotton printed T-shirts and sweatshirts. Exclusive and limited edition.
Working closely with each designer, we mentor and support them in creating exclusive designs for The Top Project. We purchase the print and once printed on fabric, turn the print into a garment. We manufacture and print in Scotland, ensuring the highest quality prints are created in a sustainable environment, with toxic free water-based inks, recycled silks and organic cottons.
Niki Taylor achieved previous success with her own label Olanic with collections shown at London and Paris Fashion Week's receiving rave reviews. Olanic established a loyal clientele within the music industry with influential stars such as Florence & the Machine, Ladyhawke, Shingai from The Noisettes and Marina and the Diamonds attracted to the Performance perfect dresses and jumpsuits. Taylor has an impressive portfolio. Having strong design and technical ability, she creates a unique signature of effortlessly cool, day-to-evening pieces in fantastical prints.
The name, The Top Project comes from Taylor's obsession with Tops, Blouses and T-shirts and perfectly combines her love of prints and vintage. Following a break from label Olanic, Taylor had a burning desire to create something more positive that would create a positive effect within the Fashion Industry; to focus on supporting and promoting new, emerging designers and to create value through a sustainable business working towards protecting the future.
