How our minds influence our #fashion shopping #behaviour
#Consumerpsychology is a well established subdiscipline of Psychology. It is defined as “a branch of social psychology concerned with the market behaviour of consumers. Consumer psychologists examine the preferences, customs and habits of various consumer groups; their research on consumer attitudes is often used to help design advertising campaigns and to formulate new products.” The American Psychological Association’s definition states that “consumer psychology seeks to explain behaviour, in two basic ways: what the consumer wants and what the consumer needs.”
Fashion is one of the world’s largest economies generating trillions of dollars and employing millions worldwide, yet it is often considered frivolous and superficial. Technological advances are changing the way retail operates and as a result, changing the face of the high street. Long-established retailers and fashion brands which rely on their heritage alone are finding themselves in a precarious situation. As a result, many are being forced into liquidation, while others are downsizing. Young companies are overtaking established brands by embracing technology, being innovative, agile and responsive.
In this immersive 1-day course, we explore the psychological processes that drive consumers to engage with fashion and consider what 21st century consumers demand. We discuss how successful brands meet consumer demands to retain customer loyalty and ahead in an increasingly competitive industry. We also investigate how technology is impacting the industry and the fashion consumer.
If we want to understand, predict and ultimately change behaviour, we need to turn to Psychology, the scientific study of human behaviour.
