Podium Shop has been the freshest global fashion trends major reflector in the Baltic States since November 2000. At that particular time, Latvia itself experienced the birth of contemporary fashion and soon after Baltic fashion started to move from a hobby of the arts community to an actual business.


Podium Shop was opened in Riga, 29 Kr. Barona Street, offering glamorous, distinctive men’s and women’s clothing, footwear and distinctive accessories created by European fashion designers.


Podium is an elegant and spacious 5-floor shopping area featuring world-known luxurious fashion brands (Angelo Marani, Nando Muzi, Baldinini, Emilio Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, Cavalli, Bottega Veneta, Christian Lacroix, Ferre, Escada, John Richmond, Michael Kors, DKNY, Dior, Chanel, to name only few.)


Everything you can possible desire is here (from leading manufacturer’s designer furniture and interior items to original gifts and household textile.) Attention fashion-conscious individuals! It’s vital for each and every one of you to climb up to the 2nd (women, who’re into fashion) and 3rd floors (men, who’re into fashion.)














Podium offers carefully chosen designer collections of clothing for both genders, who posses positive self-esteem and excellent taste. It’s all about the right attitude, right?


Expect life-quality, expect art form. However, it’s a tax-free shopping (Global Blue’s Tax Free Shopping); don’t expect it would be cheap, never, yet alternative possibility surely exists.


On 2010 in Riga, 19 Brivibas street (99% city center, nearby Old Town of Riga) the Elkor Fashion Podium Outlet was opened, cool and classy fashion spot that offers designer clothing, combined with appropriate accessories of previous collections.

I was lucky enough to feel the charm and special atmosphere of Podium Outlet myself. Gorgeous colors, sensual fabrics, no ordinary clothes – that’s what distinguishes Podium Outlet from others. Rarely, but cutting edge style clothes happens to be found there too, I dare say, with some minimalistic and far too raw characteristics, but still, it’s ok, as long as it fits you and inspires!
