UNIQLO's Global Flagship Store at West Nanjing Road Opening May 15th
UNIQLO's 4th global flagship following New York, London, and Paris, with the Shanghai West Nanjing Road store, UNIQLO will establish a presence on Shanghai's most prominent fashion avenue.
Often referred to as the “world's development center,” Asia is the largest developing market in the world. Already referred to as the “Center of Asia,” Shanghai is the largest city in that market, and is now set to become the “Center of the World.” This energy and excitement serves as the backdrop for UNIQLO's newest global flagship store. Through the Shanghai West Nanjing Road store, UNIQLO will share its brand message of quality, style, and value with the entire world.
The Shanghai West Nanjing Road store will feature 320 mannequins on 3 floors displaying the numerous ways to coordinate and combine UNIQLO's fashions, the most of any global flagship. A glass case set in the ceiling of the main entrance will feature rotating mannequins displaying the latest merchandise.
The entrance from the subway will feature an atrium that opens across all 3 floors and a special display of “flying mannequins” moving from top to bottom, giving customers in the new store a fresh and unexpected surprise.
