Zara is a Spanish clothing retailer. It is claimed that Zara needs just a couple of weeks to develop a new product and get it to stores. Perhaps its most unusual strategy was its policy of zero advertising; the company preferred to invest a percentage of revenues in opening new stores instead.

La mécanique des dessousUnderworld of female and male undergarments
This exhibition explores the pannier, the corset, the crinoline, the bustle, the pouf, the stomach belt, the bra and other vestimentary devices fashioning the body by means of whalebones, hoops and cushions according to the changing dictates of fashion.. Recourse to these concealed architectures has been constant since at least since the 14th century until the present day.
