History of the Spanish brand ZARA:
The Spanish company which is based in Galicia was founded in 1975 by Amancio Ortega and Rosalía Mera. The brand was first called Zorba after the classic film Zorba The Greek. He later found out that there was a bar with the same name nearby and rearranged the already moulded letters for the name Zorba to ZARA. Initially, Ortega made look-alike products of higher brands before designing its own set of clothes. Soon he opened stores in various other locations in Spain and changed the manufacturing and distribution process so he could make instant changes according to the changing trends.
