Brand/Story: Cases and Explorations in Fashion Branding, Second Edition examines how a retailer, manufacturer, or designer label uses storytelling to grab a consumer's interest.
For consumers, branding tells the story and creates the identity for a product, a person, and a company.
Using 10 case studies on such notable brands as Levis and Vivienne Westwood, Brand/Story looks at what a fashion brand is about and why companies advertise the way they do.
It enables the reader to think critically about branding-both the medium and the message-and not simply take advertisements and brands at face value.
