Motion Branding Consumers are responding to fashion marketing that highlights products in motion Implications - In an effort to keep from becoming static, many fashion retailers are placing a greater emphasis on movement when it comes to fashion branding. In a day and age where the sedentary lifestyle is crucified, brands with an action-oriented aesthetic -- whether it be advertisements, packaging or products -- develop a strong appeal among wellness-focused consumers.

Ethical Couture Consumers are choosing sustainability over luxury in terms of packaging Implications - Fashion packaging has often centered around offering consumers a luxury experience. However, many retailers have been making the switch to eco-friendly packaging alternatives that are less about delighting consumers, and more about communicating a sense of ethics. This shift indicates that premium products are becoming less about a luxury aesthetic, and more about a powerful ethos.
