Brand identity has proved to be the conventional means of gaining an edge in the luxury fashion market. A reputation for such as craftsmanship, style, innovation and exclusiveness provides the means to develop and strengthen identity. Brand strength offers protection against competitive threats since it typically encompasses values and qualities which are hard to replicate.
