Work is due to start soon on the first Stradivarius store in Northern Ireland.

It's the sister fashion brand of Spanish retail success story Zara, and it's opening at Donegall Place in the heart of Belfast city centre.

A planning application has now been submitted to take over the former Barratts store.

It first launched in 1994, and came to the UK last year.

The launch comes after fashion fans in Northern Ireland were left reeling for months, after Zara shut up shop in January.

But the brand reopened a larger and improved store in the heart of the city, just in time for the summer season.

The retailer added a raft of new jobs so those with a taste for finer fashion fripperies can once again get their fix at the Spanish-owned chain.

Zara's veritable success among celebrities and the public has turned it into one of the world's largest fashion brands.

Meanwhile, earlier this summer US clothing giant Gap launched its new flagship outlet in Belfast.

Gap opened the premises on Donegall Place after moving from its former home in nearby CastleCourt shopping centre.
