Bosses at Leeds’ emerging Victoria Leeds shopping quarter say there is now a rising demand for “premium brands”, ahead of the opening of a new luxury retailer.
Luxury fashion firm Ralph Lauren this month revealed plans open its first store in Leeds city centre. The brand will join a string of top designer labels now opting for the city when it arrives at the Victoria Leeds shopping quarter.
It is the latest in a series of openings at Victoria Leeds over the past 12 months, including Penhaligon’s and The Ivy Restaurant.
Jo Coburn, general manager at Victoria Leeds, said: “A signing such as this reflects the demand from premium brands for high quality retail space in growing UK cities such as Leeds.”
