BA Fashion Product Promotion
In this course ( BA Fashion Product Promotion ), our aim is to invoke students’ creativity and their passion for making fashion! On the other hand, they learn how to promote fashion products.
“The global fashion apparel industry is one of the most important sectors of the economy in terms of investment, revenue, and trade and employment generation all over the world. Apparel industry has short product life cycles, tremendous product variety, volatile and unpredictable demand, long and inflexible supply processes. The industry has been in a transition over the last 20 years” (Fashion Apparel Industry Overview).
In today’s world of globalised fashion with the extensive competition between the different fashion houses, designers and multibillion fashion corporations, there is an increasing need of communicating ones messages as clearly and uniquely as possible. The message of a brand must be distinct, clear and different from the others’ but even if it is not, it MUST find a way to become one to have the chance of succeeding. Therefore, it is highly important to understand how to create a marketing and promotional strategy that will lead to success – or at least have many chances of leading to success.
