Over the last decade, the retail industry has undergone incredible disruption, largely impacting how customers shop and what they expect and demand from retailers. Fashion retail is one of the most dynamic segments in retail, wherein companies have to keep a constant watch on the changing trends. A failure to do so would result in a considerable decline in their market share. Although fashion retail is a highly united industry, the owners of fashion brands may find it difficult to thrive in the fiercely competitive industry due to its ambiguous nature. As the pace of change in the fashion retail industry accelerates, the need to have innovative and sustainable customer segmentation models has become imperative.
Recently, a fashion retailer based out of Central Europe faced a decline in its overall sales rate. They also noted a substantial reduction in the number of frequent and repeat buyers. The company, therefore, approached Infiniti Research to undertake a detailed analysis to better understand the European fashion retail industry.
