High street fashion retailer Zara saw a 27 per cent rise in profits, opened 360 new stores and created 6,598 new jobs in the nine months to October 31, 2012.
The Duchess of Cambridge has been spotted in Zara pieces a number of times, which goes some way to explaining it's huge rise in popularity over the last 18 months. In December 2011, she wore a £69 lace-print dress from the shop which proceeded to sell out country wide. She also chose a cornflower-blue dress from the brand for her appearance the day after her wedding.
Zara owners have announced £1.3 billion profits.. Not bad at all ;)
