We are glad to have a reliable, trustworthy partner and we are convinced that there is a growing market for Wolford´s luxury and high-quality fashion also in the Baltic Region”, Gleitsmann continues.

The store is situated in one of the most popular shopping venues in Rigaand offers a wide selection of the current Autumn / Winter collection 2014/15, including all lines which made the brand a success: exclusive hosiery, seductive lingerie and soft, figure-hugging bodywear.
