It is claimed that Zara needs just two weeks to develop a new product and get it to stores, compared to the six-month industry average and launches around 10,000 new designs each year. Zara has resisted the industry-wide trend towards transferring fast fashion production to low-cost countries. Its most unusual strategy is its policy of zero advertising; the company prefers to invest a percentage of revenues in opening new stores instead.
Zara stores offer men's clothing and women's clothing, each of these subdivided in lower garment, upper garment, shoes, cosmetics and complements, as well as children's clothing (Zara Kids).

Kate Spade New York recently opened a new store at Ion Gallery. Whether it is handbags, accessories, jewelry, shoes, apparel, eyewear, hosier or fragrance. Utility, wit and playful sophistication are the brand's hallmarks.
It all started back in 1993, when Kate Brosnahan, a former accessories editor at mademoiselle, set out to design the sleek, utilitarian handbag she'd been craving for years, but hadn’t been able to find and so began a revolution in the accessories market.
Over time, core values they reinforced by classic shapes and modern graphic elements, establishing a visual shorthand for the iconic American brand.
Today, you are able to find Kate Spade New York women everywhere, with 89 boutiques in Asia, a new flagship in Brazil and distribution in more than 400 doors worldwide.

Abercrombie & Fitch promises to stand out with its unique store experience of young, fun and good looking front line staff. Step into Abercrombie & Fitch and be greeted by good looking store models and staff. The best lookers are often featured in its iconic marketing campaigns, it would be brilliant to see local faces, hopefully.
Abercrombie & Fitch Singapore at Knightsbridge is the second store to open in Asia, after Abercrombie & Fitch Tokyo. Abercrombie & Fitch began as a small specialty shop in New York City, providing the highest quality outdoor apparel, camping, fishing and hunting gear. Today, the brand continues to uphold its reputation for quality apparel, but has since evolved into a destination for casual, classic, and trend right clothing. Their East Coast roots, and Ivy League heritage provide inspiration for their youthful All-American lifestyle. The unique store experience is unmatched; their store models are the best looking and are featured in their iconic marketing. Abercrombie & Fitch is idolized and always cool.
In 1892, Abercrombie & Fitch was founded under the name David T. Abercrombie Co. The first store was a small waterfront shop and factory in downtown New York City. His love of the great outdoors inspired him to begin Abercrombie and Co., a shop dedicated to selling only the highest quality camping, fishing and hunting gear. One of his most loyal customers was Ezra Fitch.
Ezra Fitch was a successful lawyer in Kingston, New York. Restless and thoroughly bored with his profession, Fitch spent his free time trekking the slopes of the Adirondacks.
In 1900, Fitch convinced David Abercrombie to let him buy into partnership in the business. By 1904, the shop which was now located at 314 Broadway, was incorporated, and the name was officially changed to Abercrombie & Fitch. David Abercrombie and Ezra Fitch were stubborn, hot-tempered men, and they had vastly different views about the future of their business. Abercrombie was more conservative and content to continue the store as it was. However, Fitch was more of a visionary. Inevitably, the partnership dissolved, and David Abercrombie resigned in 1907. In the meantime, the store continued to expand. Ezra Fitch was a determined innovator – the phrase “It can’t be done” was not a part of his vocabulary.
In 1913, the store moved again, this time to a more fashionable and easily accessible midtown address just off 5th Avenue. Inventory was expanded and A&F became the first store in New York to supply rugged outdoor clothing for women.
In 1917, Abercrombie & Fitch moved again, this time to Madison Avenue and 45th Street, where it occupied an entire 12-story building. The sign outside the new location said, “Where the Blazed Trail Crosses the Boulevard.”
In 1928, Ezra Fitch retired, but Abercrombie & Fitch continued to grow.
In May 1996, Abercrombie & Fitch became a fully independent, publicly traded company and thrive as one of the fastest-growing merchants of the highest quality men’s and women’s casual clothing in America.
In 1998, Abercrombie opened and followed the rich Abercrombie & Fitch heritage by offering the same high quality clothing and one-of-a-kind brand experience.

Marks & Spencer was established in 1958 and has since become an icon of quality and style. Initially trading under the St. Michael name, the first store operated in a John Little store. The St. Michael name was officially changed to Marks & Spencer in 1994. Marks & Spencer offers a range of Men's and Women's fashion, lingerie, frozen ready meals, confectionaries, fine wines, beauty products, and toiletries. The retailer is also known for its green credentials as a result of its five-year eco Plan A to make it carbon neutral and free of landfill waste by 2012.
The retailer currently occupies two basement floors in the Orchard Road mall, selling items including clothes and confectionery. It has proclaimed however that it will be giving up these spaces to open a flagship store, double the size of its basement units, by the 1st half of next year, in conjunction with the launch of its spring-summer collection. It will also launch a new homeware section.
Marks & Spencer began with Michael Marks selling penny goods from a market stall in Leeds (UK) in 1884. He sold quality small goods all for one penny, using the slogan "Don't ask the price, it's a penny". In 1894, Michael asked Tom Spencer to join him and the famous partnership of Marks & Spencer was born. Marks & Spencer became a Public Limited Company in London in 1926. The St. Michael trademark was introduced in 1928 as a guarantee of quality and value. Initially used only on selected foods, the St. Michael range was extended so that by the late 1950s all goods sold bore the name. This logo is no longer used but Marks & Spencer is still the dominant brand trademark, with M&S being used more frequently in recent years in the UK. Over the years, their brand name has become synonymous with quality, value, service, innovation and trust. The business and its employees are focused on their customers and driven by these principles.
Marks & Spencer has always been an innovator in technology. In 1934 the company was the first British retailer to set up its own research laboratory to pioneer new fabrics. Thanks to its advanced textile technology laboratories and close relationships with suppliers, easy-care synthetic fibres have long been part of the Marks & Spencer clothing ranges. Meanwhile, the food laboratories were also a centre of excellence, setting high standards of hygiene. In the 1970s and 1980s the company pioneered ready meals, speciality dishes and sandwiches. In 2000, a total of 12 Marks & Spencer products were awarded Millenium Product Status - which promotes forward-thinking products created in the United Kingdom - the highest number ever awarded to a single company. The products included body sensor hosiery; machine washable wool tailoring; non-iron cotton and secret support fabrics.
Clothing is segmented by sub-brand for ease of shopping. From March 2000, the womenswear Autograph range was launched, initially to bring designer clothing to the high street. Autograph is now a premium sub-brand at our 'best' price point. This was followed by the launch of the Per Una range in September 2001 and Limited Collection in February 2003. In 2005, as design, production, and turnaround times decrease the range has become truly 'Limited' with new ranges coming into stores every six weeks. In late 2004 they also re-launched the Classic Collection which has driven an increase in their market share of the 55-plus age group. In January 2002 the menswear Blue Harbour range was launched, this brand is now the biggest casual wear brand for men in the UK. Autograph for men was re-launched in August 2005, providing a wider offer of designer-led pieces from British designers Timothy Everett and Nigel Hall. These sub-brands are also evident in their lingerie and childrenswear product offer.
