Anna Martini, president of Montreal-based fashion retailer Dynamite, said she hopes the Las Vegas store, which opened May 1 at Fashion Show mall, will be the 30-year-old company’s flagship location.
“We saw a great opportunity here,” Martini said. “And we thought our product would resonate well with this market — both tourists and locals who like to wear on-trend fashion.”
Fashion Show, at 3200 Las Vegas Blvd. South, is Dynamite’s fifth U.S. location, however, it is the first in a major city. Dynamite has stores in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
“Our other four stores were our test stores and they’re doing really well,” marketing director Adele Rubiano said. “There’s a lot of visibility for our client and our brand as we offer outfits for work, cocktails, nights out and weekends. We’re all about the innings in our client’s life and Vegas is all about innings.”
Dynamite clothes are priced at $20 to $50, District Sales Manager Vel Marina Quiles said, and accessories, such as belts, necklaces and scarves, cost $15 to $25.
