A PIONEER IN TASTE MAKING With Premium brands

Fairton began as a leather goods retailer in 1955, expanding into new business ventures to import shoes and handbags directly from international brands since 1962. The acquisition of the distribution rights for the internationally famous leather goods brand Bally in 1979, and the launch of its first boutique in Hong Kong, was a major milestone in the business development of Fairton. Building on the brand’s increasing popularity, over 40 Bally boutiques were subsequently opened, successfully establishing its recognition as a leading leather goods brand in the market.

 

Since the 1980s, Fairton has firmly chartered its positioning as the expert in brand management in the Greater China market. World-class fashion and lifestyle brands are continuously introduced to the market, setting a contemporary trend on par with the global stage.
