MUMBAI: Gabbana, Colombo as part of its overseas expansion plan is opening its first overseas branch in Chennai, a spokesman for Gabbana said.
The spokesman added that expanding overseas is a very big step for us, and we would not have been able to do it without our great team as the staff at Gabbana Sri Lanka has been with us all the way.
However, a year has passed since India's premier men's designer store Gabbana opened its Colombo branch, to cater to the elite and the fashion conscious male in Sri Lanka.
The company plans on taking fashion in Colombo to new heights, as among the activities planned, is the launch of Gabbana's official website which would not only make it easier for Gabbana clientele to browse through the store's exclusive clothing range, but it would also serve as a medium for it to promote its latest designs.
Further, company also aims to bring down highly trained tailoring professionals from India, specialised in custom made men's wear.
On the other hand, Gabbana said that customers have helped us reach new heights over the past year and what better way to thank them than to give them the opportunity to, not only wear something in Vogue but also something that is one of a kind and made exclusively for them.
