Spanish retailer Zara has announced it will open its first New Zealand store next month.

The High St giant, which has more than 2,000 stores worldwide, will open a shop in Auckland's Sylvia Park on October 6.

Womenswear, menswear and kids' clothing will be on offer at the single-storey space, which will be updated with new stock twice a week. The clothes and accessories are specifically designed for the Southern Hemisphere.

The opening is just five days after Swedish retail chain H&M opens its first store in New Zealand, also at Sylvia Park, on October 1.

Thanks to its fashion-forward designs, Zara is favoured by industry insiders and has been worn by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Alexa Chung and Michelle Obama.

Other international retailers to open stores in New Zealand recently include Chanel, Dune London and Victoria's Secret, with Aesop opening tomorrow and Tiffany & Co. in November.
