Hervia Bazaar, a luxury fashion store for men and women is now open on Spring Gardens in Manchester.


Magnificent fittings in the 2,000-square-foot boutique include original cabinets from London's Dorchester Hotel salvaged prior to its refit, an illuminated glass curved wall and an art deco chandelier made from Murano glass as the central lighting fixture.


Among such illustrious suppliers, the retailer appointed Touchretail to manage the stock control, electronic point-of-sale (EPoS) and website interface systems for its new store.


Hervia managing director, Oscar Pinto-Hervia gained confidence with Touchretail's systems and support while using the services in another retail business, as the leading UK franchisee for Vivienne Westwood.


Retailing experience pays dividends


Hervia Limited, run by Pinto-Hervia and Richard Duncalf, had over 20 years experience of retail and designer fashion before deciding to concentrate solely on the UK expansion of the Vivienne Westwood Brand in 1997.


Hervia was among the first to sell Alexander McQueen and Helmut Lang in their Manchester award-winning boutique, Hervia from 1993-1997. Since 1995, it opened eight Vivienne Westwood mono-brand UK stores and these were all recently converted from legacy systems to Touchretail, in order to have real-time updating between retail stores, head office and the website.
