Online Designer Clothing Sales
Growth of this relatively new industry has coincided with the increasing ubiquity of internet access, particularly broadband. The easier and more affordable it is to connect to the internet, the more accessible online designer apparel retailers are, making consumers more likely to shop at industry establishments. The industry will continue expanding during the next five years, although an increasingly saturated market will result in relatively slower growth. Many of the same factors that contributed to the industry's ascent in previous years will carry forward over the next five, including the rising acceptance of online shopping. Furthermore, rising consumer confidence, and thus consumer spending, will aid the industry's long-term prospects.
This industry sells designer apparel, shoes and accessories online. Industry operators may offer a wide variety of brands or a single designer's collections. Designer clothing carries the logo or name of a recognized designer, but the actual designer does not always create the clothing. Often, designer apparel is created under a licensing agreement with a manufacturing company.
