Fashionistas know that whether you are looking for this season’s trench coat or party dress, Zara will have the hottest looks. This Spanish-based clothing and accessories retailer is a favourite with fashion-forward shoppers who want the latest trends without the designer price tags.

Very Fast Fashion

Zara is unique in the world of retail. Headquartered in Spain, Zara designs, makes, distributes and sells all its own garments. The retailer’s in-house design team reacts quickly to the season’s hottest trends and designs go from sketchbook to store shelves in just a few weeks.

Fashion lovers can visit their favourite Zara location on a weekly basis and find new apparel and accessories to add to their collections. Store merchandise is replenished continuously with new and trendy styles from jackets, skirts and jeans to belts, shoes and handbags. Savvy shoppers know if you see a fabulous dress at Zara you have to act fast, because once it’s gone it is gone.

Something for Everyone

Zara carries apparel for both men and women and some stores offer a selection of infant and children’s clothing. From the chic Zara Woman pieces to the casual TRF line and Zara Basics, women can get dressed head to toe in Zara fashions. The men’s collection includes suits, jackets, shirts and trousers as well as a broad range of accessories such as belts, ties and hats.

A Spanish Success Story

Founded in 1975, Zara grew from one store in a northwestern Spanish town to an international retail powerhouse with locations all over the world from Andorra to Uruguay. Zara stores tend to be found in premium retail locations with many on world-famous streets: the Champs Elysees in Paris, the Via Del Corso in Rome and Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue are all home to more than one Zara.

Another feature that sets Zara apart from other similar retailers is its’ mandate to contribute to a sustainable society, producing most of its apparel in European countries and only outsourcing a small amount to Asian factories. The company is also committed to running eco-friendly stores, makes PVC-free footwear and uses organic cotton in many of its clothing.
