Journal of Business Research Special Issue, Deadline: March 15, 2010
This JBR special issue will include selected papers from research reports presented at the 2010 Global Marketing Conference at Tokyo, September 9-12, 2010. Venue: Shinmatsudo Campus of Ryutsu Keizai University, Chiba, Japan.
The main topic of this JBR special issue is to explore the fashion marketing strategies of luxury brands. The objective of the special issue is to bring together international scholars from different disciplines and different countries working to advance knowledge on the fashion marketing of luxury brands. The luxury industry is relatively small in terms of the number of companies, but punches far above its weight both in terms of sales and more importantly, influence. The best design, the best materials, the best merchandising, and the best packaging occur in the luxury industry, and hence luxury brands frequently lead the way for the rest of the marketing world. The role of fashion marketing of luxury brands is an area in need of new developments, theories, and knowledge in light of the trends toward global luxury and fashion markets.
