WHAT IS FASHION ADVERTISEMENT?

Fashion advertising is a branch within the advertising field which focuses on creating promotions for the fashion industry. some of the most famous advertising campaigns in history have been campaigns for major fashion houses. Fashion advertising includes advertisements for garments, purses, shoes, and similar products of fashion houses, along with high end perfumes.

The goal of fashion advertising is to connect potential customers with the brand. As with other brands, fashion ads promote a lifestyle just as much as the product, teaching consumers to associate a particular brand with a specific lifestyle and social class. The tone and content of ads may vary, depending on which market the company is trying to target, ranging from very wealthy individuals to people with less disposable income who could still be a valuable customer base.

In short fashion advertisement includes fashion designing, fashion business, fashion marketing.

FORMS OF FASHION ADVERTISMENT:

There are many forms of fashion advertisement. Print advertising appears in many magazines and some newspapers in major fashion markets. Fashion advertising can also appear in the form of television commercials, billboards, and so forth, and many fashion houses also rely on the free publicity that comes from seeing their products on celebrities and high profile individuals in the news. A designer who gets his or her garments onto movie starlets walking down the red carpet at the Oscars, for example, will see an up tick in demand from people who see the designer's clothes, shoes, and accessories such as jewelry and purses.

WORKING WITH RETAILERS:

in addition to working with fashion houses, fashion advertisers also work with retailers who carry clothes and accessories. big fashion stores utilize fashion advertising to promote themselves and the products they sell. Lower end department stores may also use fashion advertising to try to capture the bottom of the market for clothing and accessories. Whether high or low end, department stores want to present consumers with images of a specific lifestyle, using ads which tell a story to appeal to consumers and encourage them to buy the company’s products.

FASHION ADVERTISMENT AND SEXUALITY:

Often, fashion advertising is heavily linked with sexuality. Scantily clad women in suggestive poses commonly appear in advertisements for the fashion industry, whether they are marketing dresses, perfume, or anything else and groupings of models may be utilized in print ads or commercials to create suggestive imagery. Some ad campaigns have crossed the lines in the view of critics, and have generated a great deal of controversy from people who feel that such ads are inappropriate, especially when they can be seen by young children.


FASHION ADVERTS:

it often feels like fashion adverts are one of the most anticipated parts of any fashion season, perhaps running second only to the catwalks themselves. It's the mixture of high-end fashion, top models, and a creativity that is seldom seen away from the editorials which will later feature similar looks.
