Nicaraguan distributors of top fashion brands widen their horizons

Nicaraguan clothing stores Runway, NK Collection and Todo Jeans have launched their arrival in Costa Rica as part of a plan to expand throughout the region.

“We saw the Nicaraguan economic crisis as an excellent opportunity to extend beyond our borders. It's something we've been thinking about and we have taken our first next step”, said to EKA magazine Karen Fornos and Karen Martínez, owners of Runway, a fashion store focused on trend and casual clothes and accessories for young customers. With a total investment of USD 200,000, Runway has recently opened its new store in the Santa Ana Town Center, located in the city of San José.

In Nicaragua, Runway, NK Collection and Todo Jeans are official distributors for top fashion brands like Calvin Klein, Levi's and Tommy Hilfiger.

The Law Firm, specialized in the field of Intellectual Property, formerly known as Henry Caldera & Henry Caldera-Pallais, was founded in 1907 by Mr. Henry Caldera, as part of a three-way operation consisting also of the import and retail of goods. With time, these three operations became separate enterprises. That same year, and through the efforts of Mr. Caldera, Nicaragua had its first Trademark Law.

In the late 1930’s, Mr. Caldera’s older son, Henry Caldera-Pallais, after obtaining a Law degree in Nicaragua, furthered his studies in the University of Michigan, where he graduated to become a U.S. Registered Patent Agent. During his stay in the United States, he gained experience working with the New York firm of Lagner, Parry, Card and Largner. In the late 1940’s, Mr. Caldera-Pallais returned to Nicaragua to take charge of the Law Firm, which became known as Henry Caldera & Henry Caldera-Pallais.
