Fast fashion chain Zara is to unveil an “exciting and experiential” new store design in Westfield Stratford City in September.

Zara's cleaner look

Modelled on its recent opening in a Westfield centre in Sydney (pictured), the store is “clean and modern”, according to owner Inditex UK managing director Dilip Patel. The Stratford store – covering 27,000 sq ft across two levels – will be the first of its kind in the UK. Patel insisted it was a trial format and said the larger size will allow it to devote more space to menswear and kidswear.
