ollaboration strategy is not a new story in fashion landscape. Each year many brands prefer to enrich their product line with another partner. Normally, collabs enter the market such as brand x brand partnership, brand x designer, or high fashion x fast fashion. However, in these days, fashion companies have discovered another niche, called mass customization. And their partner is their own clientele. In other words, brands and customers are hand-in-hand under the roof of customization.
had my holiday recently in Gold Coast, which is the city hosting some of the most popular surf beaches in the continent and the world including. And also, it is the location where Billabong, the surf brand known worldwide, was born almost eighty years ago.
Because of this reason, I put going to shopping a Billabong store at the top of my to do list. Believe me, I am not exaggerating, to see a store belongs to Billabong at each corner in the city is quite normal while wandering through the streets. But to see numerous stores of this brand was not the thing surprised me. But I got really amazed when I met the extraordinary sale and marketing method used by Cotton On.
