Julia Calabrese, Chief executive, McArthurGlen UK

The consumer love affair with designer fashion is at odds with the economic mood right now, but help is at hand.

As chief executive of McArthurGlen UK, Julia Calabrese commands the UK’s largest designer outlet company, with seven centres.

The McArthurGlen model is bucking the retail trend, with like-for-like sales up 4.5% for the year to date across all its UK centres.

Calabrese says the centres are becoming a big draw for shoppers who want the quality and prestige associated with a label but are becoming more price conscious. With desirable outlet centres and democratic prices, Calbrese can deliver what punters want.
