While shopping in a branch of Zara, Cailey Fiesel decided to pick up some new clothes. However, when she wore one of her newly purchased dresses to work, she eventually realized that something wasn’t right. And what Fiesel allegedly found left her so horrified that she decided to sue the retailer.
Rosalía Mera and Amancio Ortega established Zara in Spain during the 1970s, and the clothing company has since become one of the most successful fast-fashion retailers in the world. There are now 2,200 Zara stores globally, in fact, and as of 2016 the firm has an annual turnover of $9 billion.
Fiesel herself, meanwhile, is a talent agent who grew up in Wilton, Connecticut. She later graduated from Colgate University and began a job at CAA Sports – a branch of the Creative Artists Agency that represents some of the world’s biggest athletes. And in 2016 Fiesel was living in Manhattan.
