  5. 5. December 7, 2009 ALLURE INTRODUCTIONIt is a typical routine of a fashion designer to starts a boutique in either of a followingarealike sportswear, beachwear, novelty items, vintage, T-shirts, dresses, tuxedos, shoes,handbags, accessories, lingerie, watches, sunglasses, and more. toPakistanAn entrepreneurial or risk taking person should have a strong control over accounting, salesand management, In-depth and up to date knowledge of the fashion retail marketplace,including trends and forecasts, flexible, multi-tasking capabilities, excellent timemanagement and communication skills. Boutique owners must be jacks or jills of all tradesit will not be an unachievable task for us only if we oversee all aspects of boutiquesoperations from planning and purchasing their inventory, setting up the in-store displays andmanaging employees. As a fashion boutique owner we can make a good market if we use acombination of savvy business skills and in-depth knowledge of the fashion retail industry. CONSUMER BUYING HABBITSBuying habits refers to what influences consumers to purchase products or services? Theconsumer buying process is a complex matter as it is dependent on many internal andexternal factors. It is no longer a question of identifying your customers by age, geographyor income, but looking into how and why they buy, based on their mood, beliefs and theoccasion. So far as in marketing field consumer buying is mainly based on either knowledgeor perceived needs. When we had different surveys at different universities and colleges and in differentgatherings related to fashion we came to know about that consumer comes across manygenuine problems while purchasing different products and services(especially related tofashion products). It is important for a good marketing manager to have a sharp eye overthese problems irrespective to the locality of retailing of your product. These can beclassified as  Problem/Need Recognition  Information search  Evaluation of different purchase options.  Purchase decisionMore over there are many other factors which have a great influence on buying habits of acustomer. These are some common factors which ought to be in mind of those who want toenter in any pre-teen market. Next was to listen to the habits of those where we want toplace our product. Near F10 markaz, we felt the smell of both the middle class and eliteclass. Also it is great opportunity to enter into a market where your regular customers cometo buy product formnear by shops. So you need to make your market from scratch becausesome of the marketing home is already done by your competitors.It’s a common belief that one’sCULTURE INFLUENCES his/her behavior the most.Obviously this culture helps them developing these opinions, attitudes and beliefs. Thesefactors will influence their purchase behavior. However other factors like groups of friends,or people they look up to may influence their choices of purchasing a particular product orservice. Marketing and advertising obviously influence consumers in trying to evoke them 5
  6. 6. December 7, 2009 ALLUREto purchase a particular product or service. Peoples social status will also impact theirbehavior. What is their role within society? Are they Actors? Doctors?Office worker?Andmothers and fathers. The lifestyle of someone who earns 250000Rs would clearly bedifferent from someone who earns 2500 Rs. Also celebrities have an influence on buyingdecision. So for the reason we have also requested SOBIA AMIR and NOMI ANSARI tocome at our exhibition as a chief guest. Whether the person is extrovert (out going andspends on entertainment) or introvert (keeps to themselves and purchases via online or mailorder) again has an impact on the types of purchases made.I would love to code here a theory of "ABRAHAM MASLOWS HEIRCHARY OFNEEDS". He suggests individuals aim to meet basic psychological needs of hunger andthirst. When this has been met they then move up to the next stage of the hierarchy. Hence,we have to reach to the level to Pakistani society and culture.So Maslows concept is usefulfor marketers as it can help them understand and develop consumer needs and wants. Weare not unaware of the fact as this directly point out the economic condition of PAKISTAN.We tried to not to make our products and services in access majorly for middle class. This isone of our marketing strategy as well as social responsibility. FASHION FORECASTINGFashion forecasting is a crucial and complex marketing strategy which requires a completehold on marketing research. Fashion forecasting is the prediction of mood, behavior andbuying habits of the consumer. ALLURE will be the future efficient indicator to forecast thedirection in which fashion will move. Fashion forecasting will be our solid link to create agood market. We will look for prophetic as well as profitable styles and ideas that capturethe mood of the times and signal a new fashion trend. We are well aware of the fact that ifwe need ahold on to fashion role as a pioneer and want to enhance its brand image, fashionhas to continue to innovate. The task of fashion fore casting will be accomplished by themanagers (owner of boutique) as we are done with our complete study on fashionmarketing.Forecasting of fashion is an initial step which is then understood, practiced and then applied.Forecasting the future demand for particular styles, fabrics and colors is an important aspectof the fashion industry. It’s a common routine of textiles specialists that they work for twoyear ahead to determine general guidelines for each fashion season. This is because of whenonce some fashion is forecasted then it takes about 1-2 year of regular hard work to take thefashion from our mind to the practical market. Forecasting of fashion can be divided intotwo categories: Short term fashion forecasting Long term fashion forecastingFor us as we are going to setup a preteen market we decided to work on short termforecasting. At a introduction stage of our boutique hireling so much labor and services forthe purpose of forecasting of fashion won’t be a great idea. As discussed earlier this job willbe done by us (owners). Later on we will subscribe to one or more services, whose job willbe to scan the market and report on the developments in color, textiles and style directions.Major trends in lifestyles, attitude and culture in particular music, sport, cinema andtelevision are used to predict changing consumer demand. This process involves thefollowing activities such as studying market conditions, noting the life style of the people,researching sales statistics, evaluating popular designer collections, surveying fashionpublications, observing street fashions etc 6
  7. 7. December 7, 2009 ALLUREFrench companies based in Paris have traditionally dominated fashion forecasting. The pointarises that why are we lacking behind and how are they leading us. Forecasting is more thanjust attending runway shows and picking out potential trends that can be knocked off atlower prices (although that is part of it) but this is a wrong practice which is being followedby our so called fashion National designers. Instead they need to understand that it is aprocess that spans shifts in color and styles, changes in lifestyles and buying patterns. Thekeywords behind the successful fashion forecasting is good consumer research, colorforecasting, textile development, range of shows (operating over the 16 months precedingseason),Introducing Innovation, Cultural Indicators etc.Keeping a fact in the mind we have made a unique collection of PARTY WEARS, BRIDALWEAR, KURTAS, BELTS and SHOES. After the forecasting based on practical figures wehope that the collection we are going to present on exhibition will be a complete innovativecollection among all boutiques. When we started our research on colors and upcoming stylesit looked a little difficult but as soon as we got into it completely, things became clearer.Making decisions about expected favorable colors of next summer was crucial task.Different experimental shows, runways and large or small exhibitions we managed to dohelp us a lot in this matter. We came to know about the taste of people of segmented marketand their positive and negative response about different outfit’s colors and embellishmentsand all. By the grace of God most of the times people respond with great appreciation andthus we got our stray to achieve our goal. INCOME LEVEL Frequent losses are expected in the first few years of any operations due to initialinvestments and expenditures but once we are stabilized, this boutique will become a goodsource of income for us. Entry Barriers 1. Large Indian and multinational companies hold around 65% of the market. 2. Low profit margins make selling a volumes game. 3. The sector is raw material intensive; input costs are high. 4. The demand for high-quality fabric increases the challenge of launching innovative products.The universal truth says, the more you put into it, the more your business will growAny change in the cost of raw material impacts the cost of the product. Many of the smallplayers sometimes find it difficult to raise cost for fear of being beaten by the bigger ones.We hope that we’ll meet these two challenges. ADVERTISING/ PROMOTION TACTICSAs for introducing over label ALLURE. We are advertising over the following:RADIO: we have planned to advertise ALLURE on FM 91.
