Stages of the Fashion Cycle Introduction Stage Rise Stage Peak Stage Decline Stage Obsolescence Stage
Introduction Stage Designs first previewed during fashion weeks are in this stage. New styles, colors, or textures are first introduced. A limited number of people accept these fashions. Fashion leaders wear the styles, which are offered at high prices and produced in small quantities.
Introduction Stage - Example
Rise Stage Manufacturers who copy new designer clothes will reproduce the styles as apparel that costs less by using less expensive fabrics or minimizing details. Fashions become accepted by more people because they can afford them. As consumer interest increases, additional manufacturers copy the fashion by adapting or changing some of the popular features. Mass production reduces the price of the fashion, and more sales result.
Rise Stage - Example
Peak Stage The fashion is at its most popular and accepted stage in the fashion cycle. Merchandise is mass produced and distributed. Prices are not necessarily at the lowest levels. Popularity of a fashion can determine how long it remains at this stage, it can survive longer is the fashion becomes a classic. Simple changes, like adding new details, color, or texture can keep the fashion at the peak stage.
Peak Stage - Example
Decline Stage Consumers eventually grow tired of certain fashions and desire something new. Consumer demand is decreasing. There are so many fashion items available that they have over saturated the market. If consumers still want to buy the fashion, they probably do not want to pay a high price. Fashion retailers begin to mark down the price of the merchandise to make room for new designs.
Decline Stage - Example
Obsolescence Stage The end of the fashion cycle. Consumers are no longer interested in the fashion and find new looks, which signals the beginning of another fashion cycle. The price of the fashion product may be low at this point, but consumers will probably not buy the merchandise.
