First of all I thank ALLAH Almighty, who gave me power, wisdom and ability
to complete the task which was assigned to me.
I are also grateful to our Course Instructor Sir. Nasir, who gave me an
opportunity to explore and polish my skills.

Stylo is not a new brand it is an old brand of fashion. Stylo does not
need any kind of introduction whenever someone talks about fashion
and classy footwear, Stylo is one of the brands that come in my mind.
Stylo started in 1974 by Mr. Azhar Siddiqui with the amount of Rs. 175
at anarkali by setting up single rented outlet in Lahore. Until 2003, it
had only four shops; and then with an aggressive expansion plan from
2004 onwards, the brand achieved a presence in 52 cities and boasts 87
retail outlets. And gradually increasing outlets in all over Pakistan and it
becomes one of that brands that define fashion. Now Stylo Shoes is one
of the largest women footwear selling network of Pakistan and the
major ladies shoes.
Sharjeel Hasan, Marketing Manager of Stylo, has given the brand a new
direction by shifting the focus from the product to the consumer.
Previously, the brand was lacking emotional appeal and relevance.
Stylo applies a customer-centric approach as it realizes the importance
of a long lasting relations with its customers. Stylo make sure that their
customers get the footwear they desire.
In The Ladies Footwear Industry, The Level of Rivalry is high. There are Several
Competitors such as METRO, ECS, BORJAN and STARLET. The Competition
Between These Companies is so intense because they are dealing with SHORTLIFE CYCLE Products.
Target market is almost same for all competitors that results in almost same
strategies so, competitors in this industry do not face hard time reading each
other’s (competitors) intentions accurately.
The Growth the Ladies Footwear Industry has experienced over the past few years
is beginning to Stabilize. This Forces Firms to differentiate using
Marketing, Advertising, Fashion and Technology to steal market share away from
Competitive Rivalry for STYLO is high.
Bargaining power of supplier
Too many suppliers are there in market. The suppliers are spread
specifically in the city of Lahore and Karachi. The suppliers are
quite large in number as compared to the buyers who order them.
This large ratio of suppliers leaves the choice on buyers. The buyers
have the complete power to work with as many suppliers as they
want and to reject the suppliers when their orders are made.
Bargaining Power of supplier is low.
Bargaining power of customer
Products are homogenous. Shoes in ladies fashion industry are not
much different in terms of design and quality as almost all the firms
have same designer. Buyers are very strong as they have too many
options available without any switching cost involved. If they face any
issues regarding price, quality etc. they would easily switch to other
brands as they can find the same designs with a slight difference
Bargaining power of customer is high.
Threat of new entrants
Established or growing market as companies exhibit solid earnings
and revenue figures which means industry is showing signs that it is
in its growth stage.
No technicality involved. Supply chain is very easy to manage in this
industry as not much technology is involved in manufacturing of the
shoes and as a matter of fact outsourcing lowers the risk of failure in
New entrants need to differentiate by spending on
advertising, customer services and to some extent product
differentiation keeping the current situation of industry.
Threat of new entrants is high.
Threat of substitute
Machine made shoes are substitute products as handmade
shoes are being produced currently in the market.
Life of fashion shoes is very short i.e. fashion trends change at
a fast pace which makes it difficult for the substitutes to follow
rapid changes, so threat of substitute is pretty low
Threats of Substitute are low.

Because boys have also become stylish and fashion
oriented. So, Stylo should manufacture shoes for male
population as well.
They should also manufacture orthopedic shoes for sugar
They should enhance their promotional activities.
They should also focus more on public relation.
