With the decline of shopping malls and retail stores, experiential marketing has provided an original and fresh way for fashion brands whose clientele want to experience their clothes in-person rather than through a computer screen.
Spring is in the air and as consumers are putting their winter wares in storage, why not showcase and enhance your seasonal collection with stunning examples of experiential marketing that will help introduce new customers to your brand and give the competition serious envy.
Building Better Brand Association
Using experiential marketing can be the foundation for building a healthy relationship between your brand and your consumer that can be mutually rewarding.
Consumers associate their preference for a particular luxury brand with prestige and name recognition. For retail brands, value serves as the determining factor between clothes that are relatively similar and harder to differentiate.
Regardless of which tier your brand falls into, if your company has positive consumer relationships, you’ll benefit from increased long-term customer loyalty.
Because fashion is no longer solely about turning heads on the catwalk or gracing the cover of Vogue, brands have begun thinking outside-the-box in order to reach a wider audience (while strengthening existing relationships with consumers) through experiential marketing.
Match Your Marketing With Your Brand
Pop-up events aren’t an entirely new concept. In fact, they’re the hottest trend in experiential marketing and fashion brands have taken advantage, setting-up temporary stores and trucks to reach new consumers and provide them with a memorable experience.
Pop-up events are appealing because they create the same air of mystique, curiosity, and exclusivity (because they’re limited-time only) that many fashion companies strive for as part of the the essence of their brand.

The enthusiasm for fashion brands to cultivate avant-garde experiences for their clientele will continue (and get even more innovative) into 2020 and beyond. From one trend-setting industry to another, fashion brands are understanding the exciting ways they can leverage experiential marketing and allow consumers to associate their brand with a positive experience.
At its core, experiential marketing focuses less on a brand’s singular product or service and more on its overall message or mission through active consumer engagement.
Generation Z and Millennials are a generational force to be reckoned with, and marketing campaigns are armed with insights and strategies to capture these historically unique demographics.
