On Tuesday 19 began a new stage in the Inditex empire. Amancio Ortega left office with high responsibility Pablo Isla was appointed CEO by the shareholders. 48 years after the employer rests Galician and we use to make grandparents onions and remember our first time at Zara.
When a company is so present in the Spanish territory and our consumption habits very curious anecdotes emerge, even if we see the generational differences of each person to contribute their unique experience with Zara . We share them here and we want to know yours.
I hope the question of the week, remember that the comments will go there and not in this post:
Colino : Zara, a brand from children.
The first time I can not remember but one of the times I remember most was when I went on vacation and bought a total look blue: American paintings and blue shorts and white T-shirt and smooth in the same color. It was in Madrid. I loved going to Zara forever! Let's say from 6 or 7 years there and was not bought sooo crowded.
Chloe : Zara, Mc Hammer and 90.
I remember one of my first time shopping in Zara with my mother. I wanted to go to the fashion of the time, but she paid, so discussion ensured. Zara was in the old quarter of Bilbao. I wanted a bomber jacket two sizes too big to go to the disco. I got away with it and took it home, but my mother had every reason in the world, I was horribly wrong and too big. In my defense alleges that she was a teenager at the height of the turkey, who ran the first 90 and Mc Hammer and Snap were the most.
Sobrado Natxo : Zara stores, this childhood memory.
My first memories are from Zara small, either purchased because they have told me and not being too clear I have a dwarf, or own, with the possibility of recreating the clothing store and then was (besides not perceive much People like now). I remember two shops I used to go: the streets of Madrid Ourense, nice big and beautiful, the shopping center the valley, also in the capital. Apparently also used to frequent the Velázquez but here I should be thinking about the pacifier because I have nothing clear. As a curiosity: I still have two shirts at the time of Kiddy's Class, the Inditex brand for kids. I still worth just as well and I have great affection.
Audrey : Zara, the change of consumption.
The first time I was in Zara was on holiday in the first shop that was in A Coruña for over 20 years, when I was a little girl. I remember hearing about the store my mother and my cousin as something that was great, cheap clothes and very trendy. From that we were spending big bucks on clothes real "brand" because it really was not anything else. I remember going for the first time Zara and leave with a few bags of pure caprice of an impressive shop. I do not remember all that my mother bought, but I remember a green shorts and a white jersey that I lasted several years. A great buy and a great discovery, the prelude to a lasting relationship as consolidated.
Sergio Gonzalez : Mom, you're too heavy Zara.
I do not remember my first time at Zara, just remember when I was small (5 or 6 years) I became angry when he had to go with my mother Zara; be half an hour in a store between hangers and clothes were for me and any child that age a chore and a hobby that ended up getting to the store over the years has become devotion. A little story of love / hate that most men have passed through it.
Andrea : clones and Zara, the eternal story.
I have a vague recollection of my first "experiences" in Zara, with a clothing store start as low quality sport and that caught my attention. Since then my relationship with the "empire" has always been love-hate. Contrary to my profession as a stylist always surrounded by shopping and clothes, in my personal life I'm not very fond of shopping and less in places with endless racks, clothes everywhere and many clones. My most pleasant memory goes back a very Calvin Klein dress in gray wool and very nun ... Was the emergence of Minimalism and I longed for a "Calvin!"
Paloma Cárdenas : to bring a hat, please!
My first impressions of the universe Inditex is located on the ground of children who opened the first Zara in Granada. I remember going there with my parents and amazed with the amount of beautiful clothes that had wanted to buy it all. With only ten years ago I fell in love with a brown wide-brimmed hat was in the window on a mannequin of a woman. I went home imagining what life would be with this beautiful accessory, as an adult, so sophisticated, remains the envy of all my friends from school. And after insisting a lot to my parents, moved heaven and earth to get the missing hat and not look at the dummy. Finally, the work paid off and when he had at hand and I was with my mother in the register to pay, I tried it and I was huge. Sure! I was a child and not a woman!
I could not take it home but still keep a nice memory of that story. I would love to find it now that I can wear it.
Charlie : not without my heels from Zara!
They say the first few times are painful, but the first time I walked into Zara was most enjoyable. Having older sister I always ahead of my friends and when I was about 14 years (more than a decade) to accompany her shopping. And then I saw: fabulous heels that had to be mine. I vividly remember what it was: infinite edge, beige with chocolate brown details on heel and mid heels. Horrible right now, but back then it was a sensation! Just do not be more uncomfortable ... Since then my love affair with Zara and will continue to.
MeriRocket : Zara, the shopping paradise in the late 80
My first time Zara was in Madrid in the late 80's. She was about 14 years. The young teenagers, had then just places to buy (Benetton and Don Cotton I recall) and some friends of my mother who had daughters older than me, told him of Zara. We went to Cuatro Caminos (I think there opened the first Zara in Madrid). I remember when I walked in the door ... I was shocked because all I liked. I bought
never forgeta long black skirt of cotton, with a black jersey turtleneck with frets in brown, tan ... I had shoulder pads. I also bought a black elastic belt, wide ... with brackets. I put a lot. Everything.
Laura Martin : the myth of the girl Zara.
I can not remember my first time, I only wanted to be a girl Zara. Should be in adolescence, and they were tall, gorgeous, super computer, with those selling uniforms, pants! They kept bending and bending and folding ... running almost around the shop, helping in everything. One time I miss.
My first purchase was a bag Zara, one of my favorite add-ons yesterday, today and forever. And a coat, it was like there was nothing special but it just was Zara. But what I liked then were his shoes, always business woman, so tall, so impossible for a teenager ...
Dior Di For : Zara had no glamor for posh kids.
I do not remember the first time I went to Zara. Since I can remember I have clothes I had there, and even remember in my school preppy girl wearing almost no clothes because it was Zara's good enough or expensive for them.
The first stores opened in Galicia and was quiteusual ladies know that "sewed for Zara" to get a bonus to help with family finances and perhaps for some people it represented less "glamorous".
Free Total : Zara cool off more.
I started shopping at Zara in my teens, but have no idea what it was or where he came from the brand. Zara began without grand openings, the typical store that is there and enter. However, already in college when I went to Erasmus, I discovered in the city of Ghent a bright boutique with trendy clothes and good prices. Around my stage I mentioned to my mother, who, dying of laughter, I replied, "that store is in your street Gondomar (I'm from Córdoba), and bought a million times". Amancio, a prophet in his land.
Miss Sue Indie : Zara, the forbidden paradise.
I do not remember my first time Zara Zara ... For me it was the forbidden paradise. In my village we had Zara so every time we went to "trip" to larger cities to go to Zara was a must. But I'm only allowed to look, my mother has a child fashion store and of course all my clothes were there, I can not buy clothes repateaba of Zara as all my friends. My mother told me she was lucky to "be different" but I'm not convinced their arguments. From the 15 I became a bit more "free" and a break was going to Zara, my forbidden paradise ... After 18 years I went to Barcelona to study and there, with plenty of shops and I were not so special visits to Zara.
Now it's your turn:
