Kate set to net £25m if her Topshop designs launch in China

7 AUGUST 2008
Kate Moss could earn up to £25 million if plans to take her Topshop range to China go ahead. The collections she's designed for the high street chain, which are inspired by her own wardrobe, are already a hit in London and New York - and will now be the focus of the store's launch on the vast Asian country.

The cover girl was originally paid £3 million for the design deal, but will earn far more if her collection goes on sale in China, thanks in part to the country's booming economy.

It's understood Topshop owner Sir Philip Green, who visited his star designer in Ibiza last week, is looking to establish retail outlets in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong, and is convinced the collections will go down a storm with the fashion-forward Chinese.

Meanwhile generous Kate has been using some of her earnings to spoil her daughter Lila Grace's nanny. The covergirl, who's holidaying in Ibiza with a group of celeb pals, treated Mary Davidson - who's Sadie Frost's mum - to a luxurious breakfast of smoked salmon and champagne to mark her 60th birthday on Wednesday. It was followed a treat- and present-filled day aboard a yacht.
