Fashion brands Carvela and Mint Velvet are set to open at St David’s Cardiff later this year, both marking their regional debuts.

Spanning 2,130 sq ft on the Grand Arcade, Carvela’s first standalone Welsh boutique will feature the brand's range of shoes, bags and accessories.

Mint Velvet's new store will cover 3,700 sq ft on The Hayes, offering the brand’s seasonal apparel, footwear and accessory collections.

The two brands will join the shopping centre's existing stores including Hobbs, Kurt Geiger, Phase Eight and Reiss.

Nik Porter, Head of Retail Brand Account Management at Landsec, said: "We’re excited to be welcoming both brands to St David’s for their regional debuts. Over the past 12 months, leading brands including Carvela, Mint Velvet, ZARA, Hobbs, and Phase Eight have all chosen to make their regional debut at St David’s, cementing it as the go to destination for retail in Wales."

Sarah Pugh, Head of Carvela Buying & Merchandise, said: "Signing for our first Welsh dedicated store is another great step forward for Carvela. St David’s is a destination with a huge draw for our customers, and one we have been targeting as part of our nationwide expansion for some time. We are looking forward to opening here next month and delivering our future-focused, female-designed products to a new audience."
