Fashion: Savvy marketing/advertising techniques empower fashion designers to differentiate themselves from background noise in a competitive marketplace. Such practices involve lifestyle branding which is derived from a unified look in how their collections are showcased. Successful designers produce style narratives that create genuine value for customers. This perceived worth is divorced from their actual product. To thrive in the Fashion industry it's wise to embrace this concept completely.
