As the last of the main four fashion weeks comes to a close, BoF turns its attention to Golden Week, a Chinese national holiday, currently in full swing, that has quickly become one of the most lucrative weeks of the year for European luxury retailers.
LONDON, United Kingdom — Anne Long hasn’t set foot inside Harrods in years, and the self-proclaimed shopaholic from west London doesn’t miss it at all.
LONDON, United Kingdom — The days of Americans being the biggest overseas shoppers at London’s Harrods store are over. While seven years ago U.S. visitors were the top foreign spenders at the purveyor of luxury fashions and specialty teas, they are now outnumbered by wealthy customers from China and the Middle East, according to Managing Director Michael Ward.
BoF editor-in-chief Imran Amed recaps the week in the business of fashion.
Last month, Harrods and Dior celebrated sixty years of joint history with a mega-sized promotion of unprecedented scale. Now that the dust has settled, BoF takes a closer look at the results of the retail extravaganza.
