The store stocks of Banana Republic's Holiday 2007 collection carries all the must-have essentials for the 'perfect summer wardrobe' from Silk blouses to linen separates with broiderie anglaise detailing, stylish trenches, sophisticated high-waisted skirts - and more than a few must-have little dresses including a section for shoes, handbags and menswear. Inadvertently, Banana Republic has also confirmed that it will be launching an eco-friendly clothes range made from organic cotton and bamboo.
In response to the allegations made on the company Dan Henkle, Senior vice-president in charge of social responsibility for Gap, said "We have launched an immediate investigation into the allegations brought to our attention. We are looking at the factories in that area where production on our clothing is done – factories which also do work for a number of other retailers – and plan to take appropriate action." Whether or not the allegations will affect sales in its UK flagship store is questionable.
