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.
