Prada ram raided

Luxury retailer Prada is the latest victim in a spate of fashion thefts across Sydney.

The Prada flagship store on Castlereagh Street was ram-raided at around 1am today, according to police reports.

It is understood a vehicle, possibly a black sedan, was driven into the front of the store, smashing its windows.

Police said a "quantity of stock" was stolen during the incident, but did not put a figure on the haul.

Kaftan designer Camilla Franks has been the victim of three separate break-in thefts this year, with two raids on her Bondi store and one haul from her Paddington site.

Sass & Bide's Paddington flagship was targeted in a ram raid last year but a metal grate could not be penetrated after a window had been smashed.

As reported by ragtrader.com.au recently, a woman is due to appear in court at the end of this month for allegedly stealing up to $160,000 worth of clothes from her fashion employer.

Eastern Suburbs Local Area Command charged the woman after conducting a search warrant on her home where 200 items of clothing were seized.

The woman was given strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Downing Local Court on October 30.
