Aperçu du document

Inditex is the largest Spanish corporation , and one of the world’s largest fashion groups. It is made up of almost a hundred companies dealing withactivities related to textile design, production and distribution. Amancio Ortega Gaona , Spanish’s richest man is the founder and current chairman of inditex.
Moreover, we are going to focus alittle more on ZARA study in order to understand what is Inditex ‘s business model and how do the company works generally. Indeed , ZARA is the flagship chain store of the group INDITEX that alsoowns brands such as Bershka, Massimo Dutti, Stradivarius, Pull and Bear, Oysho and so on. The headquarter of the group is in Coruña, Galicia, Spain, and has been founded in 1975 by AmancioOrtega. ZARA is the fastest growing clothes retailer, with 899 stores in 62 countries and a new store opening every three weeks.
Moreover, it is claimed that ZARA need just two weeks to develop a newproduct and get it to stores, compared to a six-month industry average. The firm launches around 10.000 new designs each year.

ZARA has resisted the industry- wide trend towardstransferring fast fashion production to low-cost countries. Perhaps it’s most unusual strategy was its policy of zero advertising, preferring to invest a percentage of revenues in opening newstores.
Except from countries where the legislation forbids foreigner-owned stores and where the firm franchises its stores, ZARA stores are company-owned.

Furthermore, dealing withmanufacturing and distribution, ZARA is a vertically integrated retailer. Unlike similar apparel retailers, it controls most of the steps on the supply-chain: It designs, produces, and distributes itself.
