Designer clothing retailer opens at Frenchgate

Tessuti has taken residence inside the 9,000 sq ft former Topshop space.

A designer clothing retailer has opened at the Frenchgate Shopping Centre in Doncaster city centre.

Tessuti has taken residence inside the 9,000 sq ft former Topshop space.

The store will feature a curated selection of men's, women's and children's designer collections from designer brands including Y-3, Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani, HUGO, Marc Jacobs and Polo Ralph Lauren.

Ian Leech, marketing manager for Frenchgate, said: "We are incredibly happy to welcome Tessuti to Frenchgate. Since announcing their plans to open there has been excitement building amongst visitors to the Centre.

"Tessuti will bring a whole new offering to the Centre which fits with our aim to create more designer brand choices for customers. We can't wait to see what visitors think of the new store."

Speaking earlier in the year following the announcement to open in the centre, Chris Rowan, director of brand and customer connection at Tessuti said: "We value the importance of regional locations and as a group, we already have experience of Doncaster as a popular destination.

"It was an easy decision to select Frenchgate to launch a new Tessuti store and build upon our group presence at the scheme. The new store is in a prime location, and will no doubt be a big draw for Frenchgate visitors once we launch later this year."
