How Trump’s Trade War Built China’s First Global Fashion Giant | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

On May 17, Shein — pronounced “she-in” — ended Amazon’s 152-day streak as the most downloaded shopping app in the US, a remarkable feat for any seven-year-old clothing brand, let alone one most Americans over 30 still haven’t heard of.

The kids, though, are all over it. As with so many online phenomena, Gen-Z and young Millennial shoppers have propelled Shein’s rise, in thrall to the company’s never-ending, always-changing catalogue of clothes at prices that stretch even the most meagre allowance. One recent Thursday, the app debuted 6,239 new items, including a floral backless halter top ($5), purple dinosaur-print PJs ($10), and a prom-perfect fitted butterfly-sleeve dress with pearl trim ($22). Earlier this year, a UK blogger crowed that she’d paid just £100 for more than 30 Shein bikinis, a clearly impractical number of swimsuits until you remember that social media audiences demand novelty above all.

Global Fashion Group SA, a fashion retailer with ambitions to emulate European giant Zalando SE in emerging markets, has made a big bet that the pandemic-fuelled boom in online shopping is here to stay.

The Luxembourg-based company has channeled much of its 2020 windfall into infrastructure by building new warehouses or expanding existing facilities in six of the nine markets where it operates fulfilment centres, co-chief executive officer Christoph Barchewitz said in an interview.

“That shows where we want to go,” the
