The genesis of the fashion world dates to as far back as 1826. But today, fashion is more than just about clothing.
It represents one’s individuality, personality and beliefs, and their actual presence. The industry has seen its share of all-highs and lows, profits and losses, and the ins and outs, yet it is still one of the most desirable industries globally to work in. However, the outbreak of the novel coronavirus shook it at its core.
The world saw a sudden halt following the pandemic, and fashion, as one of the biggest industries in the world, was greatly affected. Such was the extent of the impact that many international brands known for their luxury and high-society customers had to shut down their businesses. One of the highest employment-generating industries is now furloughing or dismissing its workforce.
Compounding upon the matter, the preferences of customers changed overnight. People are now putting extra thought to reprioritise their needs and what is deemed essential or non-essential. As such, industries are now compelled to develop strategies to best serve their stakeholders and overcome any challenges they may face in their operations. It’s time for brands to consider the conscience of their customers and come up with a smart selling strategy at a time when many brick and mortar stores are being shuttered, and people are spending more time in their homes.
The crisis accelerated the shift towards an uptick in online-only businesses, encouraging even the most cautious operations to switch their brands towards e-commerce. This move has been of significant advantage for all fashion outlets at a time when the industry is in the midst of a hyper-speed evolution, personalising the customer journey, offering the best community virtual experience, and focusing on what styles customers are aiming for through higher engagement and satisfaction rates. In effect, brands are now preparing for the innovations and the new vogue that awaits.
