U.S. Consumers' Patronage Intentions Towards Asian Brands' Uniqueness: Moderating Role Of Consumer's Lifestyle, Sarah Song Southworth

Sarah Song

In response to the growing number of Asian brands expanding into Western markets like the U.S., this study examines U.S. consumers and their lifestyle characteristics that may especially attract them to the unique appeal of Asian brands. Even though Asian brand uniqueness has been found to be an important asset for encouraging consumers to patronize a brand, the role that lifestyle characteristics play particularly in the context of Asian brands has not been studied. To fill this gap, the study specifically examined how Asian brand uniqueness can influence patronage intention and how these outcomes are moderated by different ...

Print Objects And Fashion Subjects: Independent Publishing In The Contemporary Fashion Milieu Since The 1980s, Susan E. Thomas 2017 LIU Brooklyn

Print Objects And Fashion Subjects: Independent Publishing In The Contemporary Fashion Milieu Since The 1980s, Susan E. Thomas

Brooklyn Library Faculty Publications

The author documents and discusses the independent books, magazines, and print projects produced by fashion designers since the 1980s when fashion and art aligned and fashion publishing transformed. Significant collaboration among fashion designers, graphic designers, photographers, and artists developed in the 1980s and continues in the twenty-first century. Self-published zines and lookbooks, small-press photobooks, and independent magazines point away from the fashion industry and towards the febrile and conceptual world of artists’ books and magazines. Fashion designers’ practices have expanded, and book making and publishing, rooted in art and graphic design, have become significant and symbolic multidisciplinary activities within specific ...

Comparison Matrix And Venn Diagram: Making Comparisons In Flat Patternmaking., April Elisha Stanley, Ellen McKinney 2017 Iowa State University

Comparison Matrix And Venn Diagram: Making Comparisons In Flat Patternmaking., April Elisha Stanley, Ellen Mckinney

Ellen C. McKinney

The innovative strategy was piloted in an existing flat patternmaking course. In the current curriculum, students do not utilize any formal comparison tools to compare patternmaking concepts, i.e. dart types, stylelines, and so on. To engage students in making patternmaking comparisons, students were introduced to the use of a comparison matrix and Venn diagram. These comparison tools would allow students to practice identifying and thinking critically about the similarities and differences of patternmaking concepts such as dart types and stylelines. An inventory of student responses was compiled by the instructor after the class period, which permitted further instructor evaluation ...

Delicate Target: A Multi-Dimensional Representation Of Woman Using Rip Digital Printing Software To Enlarging Half-Scale To Full-Scale, Ellen Carol Mckinney

Ellen C. McKinney

Inspiration. The author previously investigated the use of flowers in advertisements targeting women. This connection between women and flowers implies that the ideal woman is delicate and beautiful like a flower. The exploration outcome was a gown that made the wearer look like a rose (McKinney, 2006). The current design's purpose was to create a multi-faceted representation of the female target market. The visually strong black and white target side exterior was juxtaposed with a delicate floral side collaged from apparel, makeup, perfume, and jewelry advertisements. The wearer's self-representation may be controlled by how the reversible vest is ...


Identity Through Clothing: Argentinian Vs. American Women, Magali Farfan 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Identity Through Clothing: Argentinian Vs. American Women, Magali Farfan

Apparel Merchandising and Product Development Undergraduate Honors Theses

According to Roach-Higgins, Eicher, and Johnson (1995), “individuals acquire identity through social, physical, and biological settings” (pg.12). When acquiring identity, culture plays a vital role. Because of numerous influences on identity, a conflict exists for those who identify with more than one culture. This study focuses specifically on the problems of women who identify both as Argentinian and American. The purpose of this creative project was to create an outfit that could be worn by an Argentinian/American woman in the presence of family and friends, regardless of culture, and not feel that she is disregarding societal norms of ...
