The clothes and accessories will be specifically designed for the Southern Hemisphere, and they will update new stock twice a week. They will stock; Womenswear, menswear and kids' clothing at the large one level space.
Zara is renowned for its reproductions of designer clothes, and the brand's state-of-the-art manufacturing chain means it can turn around styles in three weeks. In-store staff are trained to listen to customers, so pieces that aren't selling can be pulled from the shop floor and tweaked to better suit a particular demographic.
The man behind this International mega-store is Amancio Ortega, and he opened his first store in Spain in 1975 and is now worth US$10.7 billion, which according to Forbes, makes him the second wealthiest in the world after Bill Gates.
Thanks to its fashion-forward designs, Zara is favoured by the front row elite of catwalk shows, actresses and models. You'll see Zara pieces intermingled with high-end designer clothes on the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Michelle Obama and Katie Holmes.
I will definitely hit Sylvia Park to check out their Spring/Summer offerings as I have long been a fan of Zara. I love their bohemian style, their basics, and their edgy on trend accessories. The quality is great, and you feel as though you are wearing something that is a little bit different.
