Chapter 1. Why go digital for your next collection launch?
Chapter 1 introduces this new guide, covering the importance of digital launches for propelling collections from fashion, luxury, and beauty brands to new heights, especially in today’s industry context.
Why go digital for your next collection launch?
Whilst the digitalization of the fashion, luxury, and beauty industries was already moving at a rapid pace, the interjection of COVID-19 placed even more pressure on brands to accelerate this process. Consumers noticed an influx of Instagram Live videos appearing on their feeds, webinars bringing major industry players together to share knowledge and information and fashion weeks that presented in purely digital formats.
Because of the inability to physically see, touch, and shop for new products, campaign and collection launches have also shifted towards digital mediums, in order to stay ahead of the curve and retain a level of industry normality. And, this strategy has paid off, as digital collection launches can actually allow for brands to gain even more insights on the products they are pushing to market as well as develop a better understanding of what may or may not work before going into mass production. From the early stages of product inception and creation to distribution, amplification, and measurement, this online guide will take you through the steps to creating effective and impactful digital collection launches.
