Chinese/Asian clientele make up a recognizable portion of the market, but I wouldn't say that alone has contributed to Yorkdale being elevated as the premier destination of luxury retail. Location also plays an important role, as Yorkdale is geographically more centralized among the entire GTA. The highway proximity also makes it easier to access for other well-to-do folks from the surrounding outer boroughs and suburbs to access. And as usual, parking is important for the often auto-centric clientele of the high end retail market. The typical Alexander McQueen shopper may not be taking the TTC to get there per se, but public transit also keeps Yorkdale popular as a whole, with it being well served by the subway, buses, along with regional connection with the GO station there as well.
