ICHI, a high profile Danish brand, is currently taking Europe by storm. The brand is characterized by high quality and cutting edge designs at affordable prices. With 12 collections a year ICHI is able to react to the latest trends from Europe’s fashion hotspots and guarantees girls something new every time they visit the store, at unbelievable value.

ICHI is more than the typical high street store, from the unique black and red retro themed interiors to the cool designs available in store, Ciara and Lisa want to offer fashionistas in Lisburn and beyond a different shopping experience. “Shopping for clothes need no longer be just functional. Girls today want to be pampered and have an enjoyable experience when shopping, with comfortable surroundings and good customer service.” Ciara stated. “They want more for their money and want the latest trends right off the catwalk. Trends can change as frequently as every four weeks and for these reasons we chose ICHI, one of the funkiest brands to come out of Europe in the past few years”

ICHI is a sister brand to b.young, one of the leading Danish brands available in Europe. Lisa, stated “Another brand that we will be stocking in our store is Gestuz, and we will be the first in Northern Ireland to stock this brand. The Gestuz collection is young and oozes coolness, soul and quality throughout. The designs are more individual aimed at consumers looking for a point of difference. We felt that ICHI and Gestuz complimented each other and we feel we are able to give a better offering to customers.”

ICHI Lisburn will be open from 9.00am to 6.00pm on Monday to Wednesday, 9.00am to 9.00pm on Thursday and Friday and 1.00pm to 6.00pm on Sunday. For a limited time girls will be invited to join a special VIP Club to be kept informed of in store events and activities and receive special in store discounts.
