Shopping mecca with technological progress
With the then newly opened Fashion House, Ljubljana acquired its first escalators and an offering of textiles that exceeded only the domestic brands, while at the same time it was the first clothing and textile store with self-service sales. Back in those days, the Fashion House was the centre of fashion events, as fashion parades, called “Tea at Five”, were held on Tuesdays during spring and autumn. On the catwalk, the models were put up with clothes that were sold in the store, and because the Fashion house’s offer was different it quickly achieved a reputation in society.
Rather than shopping, it’s a venue for amazing events
Nowadays, the Fashion House is dedicated to business and social events, especially for event organisers looking for a different space to offer creative stories. The venue is a part of the Grand Hotel Union congress and meetings offer, which has altogether 21 halls.
The setting of the venue can be fully personalized, so event organisers can set it up according to their wishes. The Fashion House itself offers 3 floors. The single floor has 420m2 of net floor area. The building itself has a rectangular shape and the façade on the front is dressed in glass.
A bright future ahead for Union Hotels
The long-term plan for the Fashion House will see the construction of a new hotel that will have an innovative concept. Union Hotels want to position themselves in the lifestyle segment, a new generation of boutique hotels whose key features are creativity, socializing and innovation.
Whilst we eagerly await the new lifestyle hotel in Ljubljana, we cannot wait to see more events being organised in the Fashion House in its unique environment with a priceless history. Long live fashion – and the Fashion house!
