Abstract

The preference of consumers for readymade branded apparels is fast changing which is caused by the creation of personality and status with the quality and comfort they deliver. Customers have become highly brand conscious presently. Hence, brand image is a significant factor in choosing the product or brand to buy. Driven by the competitive environment in fashion business, marketers have realized that creating a favorable brand image is a key to win larger market share in its market niche. An understanding of brand image can provide better foundation for developing a more effective marketing program. The understanding of consumers’ desires, behavior and of the purchase process of fashion products is extremely important to the design of fashion products collections as well as to the placement of these products in the market. A fashion product must satisfy the demands of the target customers, so the main idea (message) behind the brand (sender) must reach the consumer (receiver). The key issues are: a) how to develop the brand images through the main idea; b) how does the message, created in the very beginning of the marketing plan get through to the final consumer. This paper presents some approaches on how brands of fashion products can reinforce their fashion image and how the image of fashion products can, by itself, become a utility tool in the development and communication of the brand image.
