A MAJOR designer fashion chain is launching at Bradford's Broadway shopping centre this week as part of a rebrand. 

Flannels will open a branch at the former Tessuti store. 

Ian Ward, general manager at the Broadway, said: "Tessuti has now closed and is being rebranded to Flannels.

"The new Flannels store will be opening in the centre on Wednesday."

Flannels stocks brands including Prada, the North Face and Vivienne Westwood.

Tessuti opened its branch at the Broadway in late 2016, a year after the shopping centre opened.

The firm stocked big names like Calvin Klein, Hunter, Barbour, Michael Kors and Paul Smith.

Earlier this year, a sign on Tessuti's window said the store was due to close in July.

The sign said: "This store will cease trading in July 2023."

The message then re-directed shoppers to the Flannels website.

There have been reports of Tessuti shutting branches in other parts of the UK.
