BRANDS Just Pret - COMPANY PROFILE
Our multi-brand fashion house, BRANDS Just Pret, is the entrepreneurial brainchild of Hadi Anwar, who collaborated with Somaya Adnan & Hasaah Hadi in 2011, in a bid to establish their multi label platform with a vision to set new standards for the pret a porter fashion retail industry. Endeavoring to enhance the way in which high end fashion is produced, worn and sold, we opened the doors to our flagship store in the coveted retail haven of Dolmen Mall Clifton in Karachi Pakistan in 2011.
Launching with a state of the art retail management system as well as with a diversity of fashion styles at a range of accessible prices has led our team to expand rapidly, encompassing two more outlets, in less than 10 months. To this end, BRANDS Just Pret opened their second ready to wear retail space in Karachi, at the Dolmen Mall on Tariq Road in July 2012 and launched their first international store in Dubai at Ibn Battuta Mall in October 2012 and subsequently in the prestigious World Trade Center Mall, Abu Dhabi in October 2013.
BRANDS Just Pret operates and manages a vertically integrated business model which works with having access to over 150 designers to global marketing and direct distribution in most markets.
