The British Fashion Industry has never been more complex.
With powerful major retailers like Burberry or Vivienne Westwood, and with a great number of emerging designers such as Jonathan Saunders and Peter Pilotto, the UK fashion market has attained a new level of originality in these past few years.
Therefore, as Marie-Louise Jacobsen pointed out, each fashion brand would need to use its entire knowledge to keep up with the pace of other merchants in the marketplace, for example by being able to forecast accurately the needs of its customers or to satisfy them with the appropriate product.

...Memo To: Professor Montgomery From: Laura Graham Date: 9/16/12 Re: The Fashion Channel Problem/Opportunity Identification The Fashion Channel (TFC), is a successful fashion network that wants to strengthen its competitive position and increase revenue. Recently, competing networks have stolen key viewers; however, marketing initiatives can attract viewers and advertisers. ------------------------------------------------- Situation Analysis TFC wishes to strengthen its competitive position and generate more advertisement revenue. It has the advantage of being the only channel dedicated solely to fashion. While competition for viewers between cable channels is fierce, TFC has the opportunity to seize the key 18-34 female demographic. The company’s strengths stem from its identity as a broadly accessible niche network. TFC sells approximately 2,000 minutes of advertisements a week to cosmetics companies, brand name clothing designers, and car manufacturers. As a basic channel, most consumers automatically receive it with their cable package. On the other hand, the company is facing pressure from other channels whose fashion segments are gaining popularity. To gain wider viewership and higher ad revenue, TFC must use marketing to lay a foundation for future growth. External market conditions seem reasonably stable for business at this time (2006-2007). Consumer prices are expected to rise by about 4% in 2007, which is above 2006’s 2.5% price increase...

Levi Strauss and Co.: Creating a Sub-Brand

...Levi Strauss and Co.: Creating a Sub-Brand 1. How would you characterize Levi’s branding strategy in general? What are the positive aspects? Are there any negative aspects? Branding strategy according to businessdictionary.com- the long-term marketing support for a brand, based on the definition of the characteristics of the target consumers. It includes understanding of their preferences, and expectations of the brand. Regarding Levi’s specifically, the case discusses that the branding strategy is identifying the quality of the clothing itself. Key words such as durable, dependable, and quality are often words used throughout the marketing campaigns. Generally speaking, they are simply targeting almost any category: rich, poor, etc. Although no company is perfect, I do believe that there are no significantly negative aspects about Levi’s branding strategy. 2.

Showcasing the prêt a porter collection of the designer duo -Falguni and Shane Peacock and designer Samant Chauhan; the fashion show exceeded expectations in ways more than one. Boasting of two big names in bollywood- Celina Jaitley and Rahul Bose as the show stoppers this one sure lived up to every ounce of the audience’s expectations. The show kick started with models sashaying the creations of designer Samant Chauhan on the ramp, a rather unconventional designer who created ripples in the world of fashion for his use of ‘non violent’ silk (silk not made from killing worms, but traditionally woven in Bhagalpur). This designer who doesn’t believe in using colors besides those that possess earthy tones, took the fashionistas in attendance by surprise; the reason being a change in his color palette from one comprising earthy colors to that of black and red. His collection saw the dominant use of fabrics like chiffon and crepe; garments that were well cut and structured apart from excessive use of accessories like neck adornments (carved out of card paper) and scarves...

... was the first couturier to sit his clients down and give them a little show-having first dressed a series of attractive young women, his sosies, or “doubles”, in his creations – that we call today models or mannequin. He was the first who introduced the concept of “defile” and “mannequin”. His firs mannequin was his wife Marie Verner. Each time he wanted to launch a new fashion, he recruited his wife and the Princess Metternich. They would go to the races or another notable event wearing the new designs. Such was the prestige of the two women, that no other promotion was necessary. He alredy had many of the ingredients of contemporary fashion marketing; runway shows, celebrity models, elitism and, of course, a charismatic brand psokeman. He was the first who signed a dress with a lable with his name to his dresses. He borrowed this idea from the painters. Slide №13 French for “high sewing” or “high dressmaking” or “high fashion” refers to the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing. Charles Frederick Worth is widely considered the father of haute couture as it is known today. It was him who started to creat the clothes as a piece of art.

P. Saraswathiamma K P FISAT Business School, Angamaly, India mcpanicker@gmail.com Abstract Kids mean business to marketers. Around 40 crore kids below the age of 15 are India’s most conspicuous consumers, lapping up not just toys, eatables, gadgets, phones and clothes but also counseling their parents on big-ticket purchases. Intense competition to tap this young aspiring segment has seen big players relying on high spends advertisements, cross-selling, licensed merchandising, program length commercials, product placement and promotions involving free gifts. The researcher has tried to analyse the association of cartoon characters with brands in inducing Brand Preference among kids. Key Words: Branding, Cartoon characters, Kids, Endorsements, Consumer buying behavior, Advertising Effectiveness Introduction Children have a big say in family decision to purchase many products. Marketers are trying to cash on the children’s ability to nag their parents to induce purchase.

(2008) defines pester power as “the nagging ability of children to purchase the...

...Fashion refers to the manner of doing something. Fashion also denotes style, a dress and hair and dealings with others. Among students, the word primarily conveys the sense with regard to ‘dress and hair styles.’ These days, students devote more time to fashions than to studies. Educational institutions and, particularly colleges, present the picture of film studios. As soon as a boy or a girl joins a college, there occurs a marvelous change in him or her. Simplicity takes wings and there comes ostentation in its place. Their gait is changed; their way of conversation assumes a different modulation and their behaviour gets stricken with artificiality. They strut like peacocks and fly like butterflies. Generally, it is the student-community alone leads the fast-changing fashions. Once a thing or style gets in vogue, it is blindly followed by the students, notwithstanding how much inconvenience it entails. These days, boys, who by birth, are expected to be hardy and rough, look pale, tender and delicate. They apply all sorts of cosmetics which were formerly used by the fair-sex alone. The way they dress their hair or the way they get their tight trousers or gaudy shirts stitched, or the way they walk with their necks craned forward appears ridiculous. But they are indifferent to all sense of decency. They must follow the fashions of film actors whether they can afford them or not. In the race of fashions, girls have not lagged behind. Rather they have gone a step...

... Manhattan," she said. She also said the company could go to the Meatpacking District, but Kurland said there was too little foot traffic in that area.  H & M's competitor, Zara, has moved slower. Zara came to New York City in the 1980s, taking a spot at 750 Lexington Ave. next to Bloomingdale's. "They only wanted to be on that corner," said Consolo, who did the deal. The chain tried to expand to malls in Mexico and the southwest, a move that didn't work out well. More recently the company opened stores in Soho, the Flatiron District, 34th Street and on Fifth Avenue at 54th Street. The store carries merchandise that "looks like knock-off designer clothes," said Consolo. "Something from Donna Karan that would be $1,000 would be $100 at Zara."  As far as Mexx, which is new to the U.S., Stephanou said the company's new store on Fifth Avenue showed "they are clearly trying to position themselves next to H & M." In Union Square, Mexx (which falls somewhere between Zara and H & M in its prices), opened up across the street from the Diesel store there,  Other stores that have opened up or signed new leases recently include Sisley and Esprit. Stephanou helped Esprit find 10,000 square feet of space at 110 Fifth Ave. in the Flatiron District as part of a U.S. relaunch of the venerable '80s brand.

Other options include contacting website owners in related industries to book a place for ads on their websites. Step two; the marketer should then create a social media group or community. Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter can be crucial tools in developing brand awareness since they are forums in which consumers interact and share life situations such as their purchases and items they like.
