Fashion.ie chats to Samui Fashion Boutique. Based in the heart of Cork City is a fashion boutique that boasts some of the best known and respected fashion labels in the world today.

With brands that include Alexander Wang, Marni and Dries Van Noten, Rick Owens as well as offering the personal shopping experience to their customers, Samui has a long history of giving the customer what they need.

Fashion.ie caught up with Samui owner, Clodagh Shorten to find out more about her fashion boutique and what customers can expect from her present day womenswear pieces which appeal to those fashion conscious ladies who appreciate quality tailoring.

Clodagh, How long have you been in business?

Samui has just celebrated 18 years in business. I opened the doors to my Samui store back in 2001.

How many staff do you employ?

At present Samui employs four full-time staff members.

What type of fashion goods do you sell?

At Samui we specialise in high-end, luxury fashion with an edge, from labels such as Dries Van Noten, Rick Owens, Golden Goose and many more.

Do you specialise in any specific types of fashion goods?

We stock clothing, shoes, bags and other accessories, including jewellery and sunglasses. We also offer luxury home and gift items from labels such as Aesop, Fornasetti and Astier de Villattes.

What are your best sellers at the moment, any particular brands?

We can’t keep our Golden Goose trainers in stock – they’re always hugely popular.

Do you run any rewards programs for loyal customers?

Samui offers silent sales to our members who sign up and receive regular updates on new ranges and sales so it’s well worth being a member of Samui.

Do you cater for seasonal wear?

We buy in four collections a year – pre-spring, spring-summer, resort and autumn-winter – so, yes, we cater for seasonal wear.

How often would you re-stock to cater for new lines?

Fashion evolves so quickly so we constantly have new stock arriving.

Are your customers all local based or do people travel to see what you have on offer?

Samui is, without a doubt, a destination boutique so, yes, while we have a very loyal client base here in Cork, people also travel from all over the country to shop with us.

Do you have an on-line presence where people can buy goods from your website?
No we don’t. While we do have a website that shows samples of fashion lines we do not sell online.

Why should people shop at your boutique?

Samui is a shop for people who love fashion. Clodagh is renowned as one of the top fashion buyers in the country so her picks for each season are always spot on.

Also, our stylists are incredibly good at what they do and customers really enjoy visiting the shop, enjoying the fun, laidback ambience and putting their faith in these wonderful stylists to find them a look that is stylish and individual, all at once.

Whether you live in Cork or the surrounding areas or simply adore and appreciate quality fashion lines from some of the biggest labels in the fashion industry today, a trip to Samui is certainly worth putting on your “to do list.”

Their modern shown room and experienced fashion team are a must for local or destination shoppers of fashion who appreciate the true fashion shopping experience. At the same time you are supporting the Irish fashion retailer sector and jobs which is always the right thing to do! Don’t forget to check out Samui on Facebook for more updates.
