Over the past five years, the Fashion Designers industry has trended toward growth. Designers and retailers have started closing the gap between style and value in order to appeal to massive amounts of consumers. As a result, demand for fashion and other specialized design services increased during the period. Moreover, the industry is poised for growth over the next five years. Industry revenue will benefit from rising per capita disposable income and increased consumer confidence; it will also be aided by downstream apparel-manufacturing industries. As consumers demand trendier yet reasonably priced items, department stores will continue collaborating with designers to create product lines with mass appeal.
This industry comprises establishments that provide professional design services for such products and segments as fashion, clothing, shoes, textile, fur, jewelry, costumes, lighting and floats. These services occasionally represent the design branch of a large retail chain, but they more often represent smaller design houses that provide fashion products to a number of different sellers. This industry does not include in-house design services.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
