As many sectors of the retail economy struggle, London’s West End is seeing a continued boom. New fashion emporiums are opening on a regular basis. Originating from the usual high end locations associated with fashion, such as France, Italy and Switzerland, they are now being joined by new outlets from places such as China. One example is menswear store from the orient, Bosideng, which recently opened a store adjacent to Bond Street Tube station.

With rents for some of the most sought after W1 locations now hitting a new record high of £200 per square foot. Clearly, any operator will need to make significant sales to cover this high and rising fixed cost.
