Global apparel brands plan stores in Brisbane
May '12
After Sydney and Melbourne, it is now the turn of Brisbane to attract international apparel brands to set up their retail shops.

Gap, Zara and Topshop are among the list of global apparel brands that are on the look out for proper retail space in the city that is home to more than three million people.

Gap is a US brand that is endorsed by Sarah Jessica Parker, whereas Zara is a popular Spanish brand and Topshop is a UK chain that boasts collections of guest designers like Kate Moss.

Prada, Christian Dior and Burberry are also exploring retail space in the city at present.

The clothing brands are taking time in deciding as the rents in Brisbane are comparable to Melbourne and Sydney, while tourist inflow and the city's population is only about one-third of that found in the other two cities, according to experts.

They, however, anticipate that a majority of global apparel brands would open their outlets in Brisbane within the next two years.
