It’s Serayah McNeill’s first time in London.
“Like, ever,” said the 21-year-old actress at the Topshop Unique show which took over Old Spitalfields Market on Sunday afternoon in East London. “It’s a big eye opener.”
Known for her role as singer Tiana Brown on Empire – which returns this week – McNeill, who has dabbled in music in the past, said she’s planning on releasing an independent mixtape – no date set yet.
“I’m thinking about the first single though … coming out very soon …” she said, describing her sound as “R&B meets urban pop.”
The Topshop Unique show – a throwback to the 80s – is one of the many brands this season to embrace the runway-to-retail experience with a portion of the collection being sold on-site as well as online.
“Topshop is always really affordable and keeps in with the latest trend,” said Gallagher. “There’s always lots of color and pattern, which I absolutely love.”
The 16-year-old isn’t living your typical teenage life.
“I’m only going to shows that are on the weekend, cause I’m still at college, so I have to stay in school,” she continued, “college” in this case being the British term for high school. “But I’m trying to get in as many as I can on the weekend.”
