The show must go on: Man falls through roof during London Fashion Week 2014’s Fashion East show

A man fell through the roof during a catwalk show at Topshop’s Show Space near King’s Cross earlier this week.

Models wearing Louise Alsop’s Spring Summer 2015 collection, the second of three exhibited, had just started strutting their stuff just after 1pm on Tuesday when a loud bump shattered the mood.

Showgoers on the left of the catwalk, including Vogue’s Sarah Harris, were left visibly shaken after seeing the man hit the ground.

One eyewitness said: “I just happened to be looking at that corner and I saw his face as he fell.

“Why didn’t they stop the show to help him?”

The bewildered audience continued to question where the ambulance was right until they stretchered him away.

The unnamed man is reportedly recovering in hospital and organisers are now trying to establish why he was on that section of the roof.
