UK: Marchpole Beats Predictions With Half-Year Figures
Men's fashion group Marchpole Holdings has reported half-year sales ahead of expectations.
The autumn/winter order book for fashion house Yves Saint Laurent has been 70 per cent delivered, whilst 85 per cent of its Ozwald Boateng book has been delivered the company said.
Over 80 per cent of the Jean-Charles de Castlebajac line has also been delivered, meaning the group's performance has so far fulfilled directors' predictions.
The group said in a trading statement: "The YSL and Boateng order books for this season now stand at £10 million compared with orders £8.5m for the spring-summer 2004 season at the same time last year."
