Topshop doesn't own a space in China yet, but as we mentioned in August, Sir Philip Green has been hoping to ink a deal at the Shanghai Superbrand Mall. Further spaces in Beijing and Hong Kong are also in the works.

Kate was nowhere to be seen in Hong Kong this week, except on billboards (pictured right) but that didn't stop fans from lining up to nab pieces from her Christmas 2008 collection.

The launch was a precursor to the big debut at Lane Crawford in Beijing on Saturday.
