ZARA Zara central design team

Zara Distribution Plan Zara Product strategy

■ Short Lead Times: Keeping Up With Fashion-


Zara can move from identifying a trend to having clothes
in its stores within 30 days
■ Reducing Risks
By reducing the quantity manufactured in each style,
Zara not only reduces its exposure to any single product
but also creates an artificial scarcity.
■ Leadership in Numbers
Instead of more quantities per style, Zara produces more
styles, roughly 12000 per year, and offer more choices
than its competitors
