FASHION HOUSE Outlet Centres offer consumers a unique discount shopping experience – top quality international and domestic brands are available all year round for 30-70% less than original prices, within buildings of a unique architectural theme. This shopping environment distinguishes them from any other local shopping scheme: from a 19th Century street with railway architecture, through a traditional fishing village with its own lighthouse to a replica of Warsaw or Bucharest “Old Town” facades.
FASHION HOUSE Group is a fully integrated company consisting of two main business units: Development and Management. Development has in home all the professional skills that are needed to fully and successfully develop a top-of-the-range outlet centre according to the FAHION HOUSE concept. But since the real estate is only half of the project, a highly skilled outlet Management team is meant to make the centre successful. As a provider of management and operations services the company has a portfolio of nine outlets including three non-FASHION HOUSE branded sites in Switzerland, Serbia and Slovenia. FASHION HOUSE Group also franchises its know how to third party investors/developers. An ideal formula which allows for FASHION HOUSE Group to accelerate its growth and for the investors to decrease the risk and increase the profitability.
